Access requirements

Gender neutral toilet. Many of the floors are made of original timbers so we do not permit high heels in the house. The space is small, so we ask that visitors do not come with large bags or are prepared to leave bags in a safe space on the ground floor of the house. The house is a Grade II private residence with numerous stairs and narrow passageways, and we regret that wheelchair or step free access is not possible. We welcome babes in arms. There is no age restriction for tours, but in the interests of health and safety we ask that children are accompanied by an adults
