Is the upstairs of the house accessible to someone with a mobility issue? Is there a lift ?
It's not the best for the disabled, I'm afraid, but don't let that put you off totally. I took my late partner there in a wheelchair and the staff did their level best to make her visit enlightening and enjoyable.
Nor really the way the house is designed
There is no lift.
I was there recently but I Googled this on the National Trust website to ensure my response was factual.'There is wheelchair access only to the sitting room, hall and library (electric wheelchairs not suitable for the house)'
The access is limited due to the narrow-ish corridors and sharp corners. There is further info on the website. For instance, the art studio where the great man painted is away from the property and has but a single step to access area. The car parking also considers wheel chair users. Just going to the venue is very worthwhile and enjoying the outside in good weather is a joy.
