Accessibility

Visitors with disabilities are very welcome and our staff will do all they can to help you with any requests you may have during your visit.

The Gardens, Kitchen and Gift Shop are all accessible. The Gardens have gravel paths and a map of recommended routes is available from the entrance kiosk. We have a manually operated wheelchair requiring a helper, and an electric buggy, for use by our visitors. The wheelchair is offered free of charge and the buggy costs £5 (which is paid to Kendal and South Lakes Centre for Independent Living). Both can be booked in advance and availability depends on demand.

Narrow door openings and steps throughout the Hall unfortunately mean that the house is not accessible for those in wheelchairs or using mobility aids. However, don’t miss out! Ask a member of staff to see a copy of our House information book to give you a fascinating insight into the history of the House and see stunning photos of the beautiful interiors and fine collections. For those who can walk a short distance and climb stairs, there are seats placed throughout the House for your comfort.

All notices and information signs are on recommended coloured paper and type size. There is a large print version of the text of the House information book. 

Please note that there are no toilets in the House or Gardens. However, there is a fully equipped accessible toilet with a low level alarm for emergencies in the courtyard located between the entrance kiosk and the Gift Shop, and in the entrance to Levens Kitchen.
