The garden is accessible to all as we have removed many steps and provided a hard surface loop around most of the garden. I hope you appreciate our efforts. However:
Please try and keep to the paths, particularly in damp conditions.
The Vineyard door is not accessible; please go around either way
The Memorial Gates are not accessible. Please use the diversion route to the right (north).
The steps at the north end of Millennium Garden are not passable. Please go round the drive and under the Clock Tower.
Please consider not going down into the valley unless you have the means of getting out; stay on the high ground.
There is a fully compliant Disabled WC in the Stable Yard.
The Bluebell Wood is accessible but please do not venture in the furthest sections, from where the path divides, as there are many steps.
We reserve the right to deny access to Transit Chairs (those with 4 small equal wheels) intended for use in institutional environments. These are not suitable for garden use. Consider transferring to one of our wheel chairs, available for free hire.
Refreshments: Homemade teas and light lunches available on all openings in our newly refurbished Coach House tea room with ancilliary Rolls Room offering undercover seating for 100.
Homemade or locally made quiches and free range pork pies served with salads, beetroot & goats cheese salad, ploughman’s lunches, soups and sandwiches available as a light lunches.
Hole Park is renowned for its delicious homemade cream teas, all prepared on site by Clare, wife of Edward Barham the owner of these beautiful gardens. It’s the homemade touch that makes them such a success, serve with clotted cream and locally made jam from The Wooden Spoon Preserving Company. (Subject to availability)
