ACCESSIBILITY

DISABLED VISITORS

At Becky Falls we are committed to accommodating disabled visitors as much as possible – however our ability to do this is limited by the fact that our walks are, by their very nature, through woodland and a boulder-strewn valley. We welcome visitors with any form of disability, whether physical or learning-impaired. Due to the nature of the woodland walks, the trails are not accessible to wheelchair users and for this reason we allow wheelchair users into the park free of charge. However our petting zoo area, Indoor Theatre and Children’s Craft Area are all wheelchair-friendly. Our cafe is also fully accessible. We would advise visitors with ANY mobility problems to talk to our staff about the walks BEFORE setting out, so that we can advise on the suitability of the trails. Please note that the access to the park is via a steep path. However, we can offer a level pick-up point for those visitors who are unable to negotiate the steep uphill return to the carpark – please ask for assistance at our cafe. There are disabled toilet facilities adjacent to the cafe.

 

PUSHCHAIRS

The nature trails are not suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs. However access is available to the cafeteria, petting zoo area and indoor theatre. Backpack carriers (for ages 6 months +) and front baby carriers (for ages under 6 months) are available to hire from our cafeteria for a returnable deposit.

 

CHILDREN

Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult at all times and must be supervised in all areas of the park, including around the animal enclosures. Please don’t allow your children to be on the trails by themselves or to enter the animal enclosures. Unisex baby changing facilities are provided in our toilets (adjacent to cafeteria) and a private area for breastfeeding can be arranged (just ask at the cafeteria). A selection of baby food is available at the cafeteria and we are more than happy to assist with food and bottle warming.

 

DOG FRIENDLY

Dogs are very welcome here at Becky Falls. We do ask that they are kept on a lead at all times. This is for both their own safety and that of the wildlife. They are welcome in the Cafe and Gift Shop. The only areas they are restricted from are the Animal Petting Area and Animal Encounter Room, this is due to the animals being outside of their enclosures.
