Accessibility

The house and estate are disabled-friendly and there are a small amount of parking bays for blue badge holders. There are some steps around the estate especially on the Woodland Walk where the path is surfaced with bark chippings. Alternate access routes are clearly sign-posted.

To enjoy the house and grounds to their fullest, visitors with walking difficulties may need to consider bringing their own mobility aids. Please be aware that the pathway from the car park to the house has a slight incline and is approximately 200 metres long.

There are various mobility shops in Bridlington which hire equipment out on a daily basis.

Disabled access to the house itself is at the rear of the building through the courtyard and there is a lift to all floors.

Due to conservation issues motorised wheelchairs, buggies or scooters are not permitted in the house or the first floor of the Old Laundry Block. We have a small amount of hand-pushed wheelchairs for use inside and these are available on a first come, first served basis.

There is a unisex disabled toilet in both the Orangery and the courtyard.

There is a Changing Places unit located within the courtyard and a radar key can be obtained from the Welcome Centre. For more information about Changing Places, please follow this link.

Registered carers

Registered carers are allowed free access to the estate upon production of valid identification. Their cared-for visitor pays the standard admission fee.

Please provide some means of proof indicating that you are a local-authority registered carer at any of our pay boxes upon arrival. This can be a badge, a card or a letter of proof of carer's allowance depending on your local authority.

On the Land Train, one registered carer is allowed to travel free with each cared-for visitor who will be charged the standard trip price.
