Lovely place to visit for all the family. Lovely grounds and places to walk and sit and relax. Weather was amazing when we visited too. Plenty of parking too. As members of National Trust was glad we visited here.

Hi there, yes entrance to the estate is via a road and ramped access. Parts of the grounds/gardens are scooter friendly. Hope this helps.
