Free Admission For Essential Carers
Visitors with a disability are entitled to a reduced concessionary admission rate, essential carers are admitted free of charge.
A paved route in the Stable Courtyard provides access to the cafés,
shops, toilets & Ticket Office. A mixture of cut grass and gravel
paths in the grounds make them fully accessible. Unfortunately Ray Wood
is not suitable for wheelchair users or those with restricted mobility
due to uneven terrain.
There is a stairlift in the house which takes visitors to the main floor
and the majority of the rooms. The lift can be used by manual wheelchair users
or those with limited mobility.
We regret that access to the High South and Chapel is restricted. Information on these areas is
available to view in folder from within the house.
An overview of the house tour is available in a selection of languages and can be collected on arrival or downloaded in advance.

will assist visitors getting on and off the vehicle.
A hearing loop is located in the Ticket Office.

We have manual wheelchairs which can be borrowed to use in the grounds and the house. They can be collected from the Ticket Office or at the house entrance. There is no need to pre-book a wheelchair, we have plenty available.
