Accessibility statement for Easton Walled Gardens
All our car parking areas are step free and we do have a specific area for disabled visitors to park. There is a slope from the car park down to the Courtyard area. We do have an alternative pick up point if needed. Please ask one of the team at The Courtyard Shop.
The entrance to The Courtyard from the car park is via a slope. Entrance and exit to The Courtyard shop is through double doors. The Courtyard Shop is the payment area to visit the gardens. Entrance to the gardens is under the large archway at the Gatehouse Lodge.
We have disabled facilities in our main loos in The Courtyard.
The gardens are split into 2 levels. The upper gardens are accessible by wheelchair. Although there is no access to the lower gardens by wheelchair it is possible to look down over the gardens from the site of the old hall.
There is a steep drop to the lower gardens with steps on the terraces which are not recommended if you are unsure on your feet. There is however alternative access down the slope next to the vegetable garden. This avoids the steps and has handrails at the side.
Although we have made every effort to make our paths as accessible as possible, some mobility scooters may struggle due to the woodchip surface.
Entrance to The Applestore is by a ramp. This is also the way out for wheelchair users due to the exit door having a step.
Assistance dogs are welcome in all areas of Easton walled Gardens.
Please call our team on 01476 530063 or email [email protected] if you would like any further information.
