Disabled Guests

We welcome guests with disabilities and work hard to ensure that you can access as much of the site as possible. Disabled parking will be clearly marked, and Blue Badges should be displayed. We hope visitors will understand that the gravelled paths, although not ideal for wheelchairs are part of the character of the house.

Dogs at Holdenby

Due to the animals and birds in our Falconry we have sadly had to take the decision to allow assistance dogs only.
