Disabled access

Exterior

Access into Fowl Green Farm yard is over a cattle grid and is clearly sign posted from the road. All cottages have space for a setting down point and car parking is close to all of the cottages. There are no designated car parking spaces, but there is plenty of space for accessing vehicles from the side or rear. There is both covered and open parking. Although the yard is on a gradient, footpaths lead to all cottages from the car parking area. There are no steps or ramps. There is also footpath access out of the yard, to the road or adjoining bridle path.

From the farm yard, accessible footpaths and picnic areas have been created. Power wheelchairs may be available to borrow, to take advantage of the farm land.
