    Notes

    We are a farm visitor attraction situated within the World Heritage Site of Hadrian's Wall therefore: 1. A concrete surface leads from the disabled parking to the entrance, the walkway from the main Car Park is gravel. 2. Nature Trail is accessible with a children's buggy. 3. Some attractions are located in grassy paddocks with no concrete walkways, after a prolonged period of wet weather they may be less accessible. 4. Concessions are available for those aged 65 years and over only.
