This is a review of the Farm, not the House. Myself, my daughter and my granddaughter visited one day after bank holiday - and were very grateful for the lack of crowds! However, my daughter is in a wheelchair and the place was, initially, a nightmare. Gravel pathways from the car park to the entrance, then waiting for the gate to be opened (thus avoiding the narrow corridors and stairs) were not too much of a problem. However, you are then faced with not one, but two, large cobbled courtyards - I was forced, through necessity, to walk backwards and pull the wheelchair - pushing was just not an option. We also had to negotiate a step. Thankfully, once we navigated those courtyards, the pathways were well-trodden ground and much easier for the wheelchair. Having said all that, the farm itself was lovely - acres of well maintained ground with different farm animals dotted around in pens - and some very friendly goats out of their pens and ripe for stroking! Plenty of space for picnics. Once we had re-negotiated the nightmare cobbles to get back to the cafe, despite many signs around advertising soft ice-cream, it turned out that (due to 'unexpected' heavy bank holiday crowds) they had run out of ALL ice-cream and ALL lollies!!
We then went on to the adventure playground (thankfully, tarmac all the way!) which was great, with a good variety of items even for toddlers.
All in all, it was a lovely visit but I do think they could - and should - make the whole thing much more disabled-friendly just by the addition of a smooth path across/around the cobbles.
