Special needs

Please make sure we are made aware in advance of any special needs individuals in your group may have.

We will try to ensure that outdoor sessions are adapted to accommodate individual needs such as walking difficulties, visual or hearing impairment or behavioural problems. Following extensive refurbishment, most of the building is now wheelchair accessible, and we have disabled accessible toilet, shower and bedroom facilities.
