Wheelchair users (under 225kg) are able to use our House stair lift which takes visitors to the main floor of the House and to the majority of the rooms. Electric wheelchair / scooter users will need to transfer into a manual wheelchair to use the House stair lift and we have plenty of manual wheelchairs which can be borrowed if required. We regret that access to the High South and Chapel is restricted, information on these areas is available to view in portfolios from within the House.
