Please note that the maximum size we can fit into the steam train carriage is 130 cm high x 120 cm long (front to back) x 70 cm wide.It may not be possible to fit mobility scooters and larger wheelchairs on the carriagesThere are two wheelchairs available to borrow.

Please note that the two miniature trains are too small to accommodate wheelchairs.

Getting around
Around half of the attraction, once you arrive by train, is accessible by wheelchairs with hard paved paths connecting the train platform with the café and main toilet block.

The crazy golf is very accessible with smooth, fairly level access and we enjoyed a good game of golf with our wheelchair user reviewer while visiting.

The Engine Shed
The Engine Shed cafe has very good access and also has a changing places toilet. The seating outside on the deck by the lake is suitable for wheelchair users and there is plenty of space and good access indoors.


There is also another accessible toilet near to the gift shop and play area in the main toilet block.

Hearing Impairment Support

There are clear announcements over a speaker system when you arrive at the main attraction site.

They are happy to accommodate many special requests from families in order to make your day out as comfortable as we can. Please contact us by phone or email to have a chat about what they can do to support you.
