Farm grounds

Mary Arden's is a working farm where most of the grounds and buildings are accessible to visitors, with some ramps provided for wheelchair users. However some paths are uneven - made worse in poor weather - and may prove difficult for wheelchairs and pushchairs. A courtesy wheelchair is available and our experienced guides can offer a sensory tour for visitors with sight impairments. There are also foreign language and large print guides available.

Owing to the close proximity to farm aniamls there are hand-wash stations situated around the site.


Visitor toilets are located in the farm yards and adjacent to the cafe. An accessible toilet and baby-changing facilities can be found in the Rickyard.

Palmer's Farm & Mary Arden's House

The ground floors have uneven surfaces and can be narrow in parts. The first floors are inaccessible for wheelchair users. Note: Palmer's Farm garden is inaccessible for wheelchairs.

Mary Arden's Cafe

This is approached via steps or a ramp from the car park or the Rickyard. The cafe layout offers easy access.

There are also picnic tables near the children's playground and around the site.
