Key info for families
Access for pushchairs
You can get round the gardens on wide, hard gravel pathways. Do bear in mind that walkways through woodland, wetland and parkland can be muddy. In some parts of the woodland, tree roots come across the path.
As the Brewhouse tea-room is rather snug, you’ll need to leave buggies and pushchairs in the shelter provided.
In the house, we can provide slings whilst pushchairs are left in the cloak room to the right of the main house entrance. Items are left at your own risk.
Toilets and baby changing
If you find yourself making a hasty dash, child in tow to the loo, you’ll find baby changing facilities and toilets in a block on the left, just after visitor reception, and also by our Brewhouse tea-room.
Food for children
Our Brewhouse tea-room has childrens’ lunch boxes containing sandwiches, fruit, mini cheeses, yoghurts and cartons of drink.
If you need to warm up milk, a microwave is available in the ground floor seating area of the Brewhouse.
Although the house, shop, tea-room and children’s play areas are just for humans and guide dogs there are plenty of walks for you and your canine companion to do together.
So that everyone can enjoy their visit to The Vyne, we ask that you please keep your dog on the lead at all times and use the bins provided.
Adventurers under the age of 10 can explore the Hidden Realm behind the shop.
