The house and estate are disability-friendly and there are parking bays for blue badge holders. There are some steps around the estate, especially on the Woodland Walk where the path is surfaced with bark chippings. Alternate access routes are clearly sign-posted.
In order to preserve our historical items, pushchairs and prams are not permitted in the house or Orangery. A storage area for these items can be found near the rear door of the house and locks are available. Please ring the bell at the back door and a staff member will attend.
We have two HippyChick Hipseats available for visitors to borrow.
Baby-changing facilities are available in the courtyard and Orangery toilets.
Mothers are welcome to breastfeed their children anywhere on the site. Staff can arrange a discrete space if requested.
Sewerby Hall and Gardens welcomes responsible dog owners. Dogs must remain on leads at all times. Only Assistance Dogs are allowed in the zoo, house, children's adventure playground, Stables Gift Shop, Orangery and Clock Tower Cafe. There is a section in the cafe where all dogs are permitted.
With the exception of assistance dogs, dogs are not permitted to attend certain events such as the Adventure Cinema evenings and the Winter Woodland event.
To enjoy the house and grounds to their fullest, visitors with walking difficulties may need to consider bringing their own mobility aids.
There are various mobility shops in Bridlington which hire equipment out on a daily basis.
Disabled access to the house itself is at the rear of the building through the courtyard and there is a lift to all floors.
Due to conservation issues motorised wheelchairs, buggies or scooters are not permitted in the house or the first floor of the Old Laundry Block. We have a small amount of hand-pushed and self-propelled wheelchairs for use inside and these are available on a first come, first served basis.
You are not allowed to smoke cigarettes, use e-cigarettes or vape in any indoor areas (including the house, Orangery, cafe, shop, Welcome Centre, training rooms and public conveniences) as well as The Courtyard, Clock Tower Cafe Terrace (the outdoor seating area), the Children's Play Area, Zoo and Marquees. The ban is part of the wider East Riding of Yorkshire Council No Smoking Policy and for the comfort of all visitors.
Blue badge parking is available in the main car park for our visitors.
Visitors are advised to contact the pay box attendant on arrival if there are any difficulties with parking. A member of the team will advise accordingly.
Alternative parking may be available subject to ground conditions, events and activities.
Carers are allowed free access to the estate when accompanying a cared-for person. The cared-for visitor pays the standard admission fee.
The cared-for person is asked to provide evidence on arrival, this can include:
Arrangements can be made if more than one carer is required to support the cared-for person.
On the Land Train, one carer is allowed to travel free with each cared-for visitor who will be charged the standard fee.
For conservation reasons, many of the rooms inside the house have low lighting. Please allow sufficient time for your eyes to adjust, particularly when using the stairs.
