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.

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.

I have a disabled son & would normally spot access, but on my recent visit I did not see any access to upstairs other than stairs . Try contacting National Trust to see if this is possible for those with limited mobility .
