Free EntryFree Entry - Entry to the site is free, come and see all that we have to show. We have the Forge Falconry where you can watch the incredible displays and for a small donation you can also hold one of our magnificent birds of prey, displays usually take place on weekends, school holidays & bank holidays. See our resident artist, Rebecca Sarah, she hosts a series of art sessions for all ages and also has some of her exciting work on display. We have a silversmith workshop, watch how a ring is made or even a bracelet. We also have our resident Blacksmith team, watch as they hammer away at red hot iron to form all kinds of wonderful things. 

Free ParkingFree Parking - We have a large car park situated at the back of the site, follow the signs upon arrival to navigate. For large events we do have much larger sites for parking, so never worry about finding a space. Although our car park is secure, we do not advise that you leave anything of value in your car when unattended.

 

 

Dog FriendlyDog Friendly - Dogs are allowed on site, however dogs are not allowed within the Showroom/Cafe Area (with the exception of guide dogs) but we do have a lovely veranda where you can relax on our leather sofas and enjoy some refreshments. We also have water bowls allocated throughout the site. Please note that on a warm day a car can become overheated, this can prove fatal to dogs, so please bring them with you to enjoy the site.

 

Disabled AccessDisabled Access - We have a disabled toilet located in reception which is opposite the disabled car parking spaced. We do have a wheel chair on site that is free to use if required, please note that prior notice is required for this service. There are ramps situated throughout the site, this will allow easier access to most of the areas. This summer we have Carol Booth joining our team as our disability officer, she will be able to assist with any requirements needed for you to enjoy your visit. She is located in our Palm House and will be on site for events and busy weekends. We are currently working on a new series of toilets in the new toilet block. Please note that on a wet day the ground can become more difficult to access if you require a wheel chair, ask a member of our team about our golf buggy. 

Baby FacilitiesBaby Changing Facilities - Our baby changing facilities are located within the disabled toilet by reception. We also have a high chair available in our cafe. On weekends children can receive a free ice cream voucher, they can be collected by our main gates.

 

Picnic Policy - Visits to the centre are free, but in order to maintain this we rely on the sales from our Forge Cafe and Showroom to help maintain the site, because of this we kindly request that visitors refrain from bringing picnics from home and purchase refreshments on site. The only exception are school trips where children are allowed packed lunches. Thank you for understanding.
