Unfortunately, whilst this building works incredibly well for people with a variety of specific needs, it has not been designed to facilitate independent living for wheelchair users. It is expected that able bodied group members will be present as part of a group booking the building.

Please see our Woodlands accessibility guide on the Visit England & Scotland Accessibility Guides website.

When booking Woodlands on its own access is limited to the building, the fenced patio/garden area, fenced rear woodland area and disabled parking space. Access to the wider centre is limited to those staying in our Farm House, Lodge and campsite and day visitors who have pre-booked. Please see our website for more information.
