The nature reserve is untamed, with narrow uneven and often muddy paths. We offer free guided walks, and can tailor these to suit physical abilities. We have one back pack baby carrier we can lend out. If you can't manage the nature reserve we'd be happy to take you pond dipping or accompany you on another part of the farm walk. Please note that many sections, though less challenging that the nature reserve, are still over uneven ground. The most accessible section is the path across the field and around our biggest wildlife pond. This is suitable for buggies and wheelchairs, so long as ground conditions permit.
