Accessibility at Cogges

Cogges Manor Farm is a unique heritage site with a beautiful 13th century Manor House and 18th century farm buildings. We are a rural destination which presents some challenges when it comes to accessibility but we are committed to providing an inclusive visitor attraction as much as possible.

Accessible Parking

There is on site Blue Badge parking and drop off from Church Lane in front of the entrance (OX28 3LA). Otherwise the main car park is off Cogges Hill Road at OX28 3FR. Access to the farm from the main car park is either via a grass path across a bridge and meadow or via the alternative tarmac path around the perimeter.

Toilet facilities and baby changing

Accessible toilets are available in the block in the disabled car park (with accessible ramp) which services the café, and in the toilet block next to the farmyard (no ramp needed). Baby changing facilities are available in all toilets on site.

Cafe and gift shop

Our café and gift shop are accessible by wheelchair and push chair. Space is available for buggy parking outside the cafe and we have high chairs available. Well-behaved dogs are welcome inside the cafe.

The Manor House

The ground floor of the Manor House is accessible by wheelchair and standard, single pushchairs/buggies.  Wheelchair access to the Manor House is via the porched doorway to the North of the building. Routes and doorways are narrow, so ramps are short and steep and require a narrow wheelchair (max width 610mm/24inches). A folding wheelchair is available to use on request, subject to availability (ideally contact us first to reserve - otherwise please ask a member of staff on arrival). Ramps are in place to allow access to all rooms on the ground floor. The first floor is not accessible due to historical stairs.  However, there is a film showing the upper floors on a television in the stable, and this can also be shown on request in the Living Room on the ground floor, which usually screens the film about the making of Downton Abbey - Yew Tree Farm.

Audio soundscapes and audio visual displays are in place in most of the rooms in the Manor House. Some are motion triggered on entry. All can be turned off to provide a calmer environment if required. Please ask a member of staff on arrival if you would like to have these turned off during your visit and agree timings.

Assistance Dogs

Assistance dogs are permitted in all parts of the site. Please keep them on a short lead at all times.  Note that ducks and poultry are free-roaming onsite.

If you require additional support, please email before your visit so we can do our best to accommodate you.
