Accessibility

As all Denys Bower’s collections are sited on the ground floor at Chiddingstone Castle, they are easily accessible for wheelchair users.  The newly opened Library and Streatfeild Room (showing the history of the Castle and the village) are to be found on the first floor just off the Gallery - regrettably there is no lift to these exhibition rooms but interpretation of the Streatfeild Room can be read in the ground floor Housekeeper’s Room.  Four specially reserved disabled car parking spaces are located in the car park (a one minute walk from the main North Door) and a spacious disabled washroom is sited in our Tea Room courtyard.  All principal entrances and exits can be fitted with wheelchair access facilities.  Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions regarding your visit.

Fishing

Our lake covers around 3.5 acres and is naturally stocked with Carp, Bream and Perch and is used by responsible fishermen all year round. Please note there are a couple of dates where fishing is not permitted.

Bicycle Hire

We are delighted to host a rack of Country Bikes in our Car Park which is a new bicycle hire scheme that makes exploring the countryside by bike easy.

Why not start with a coffee and a piece of cake in our Tea Room and then pedal off to explore the National Trust village of Chiddingstone, explore Bough Beech reservoir, Hever village, or cycle over Penshurst Place.
