Access for all
We work hard to make Moors Valley as accessible as possible for everyone.
The footpaths around the Moors and Crane lakes, the play trail and in the vicinity of the Visitor Centre are tarmac or compacted gravel and so are fairly good for wheelchairs and pushchairs. There are regular resting points provided wherever possible.
The restaurant, country shop and golf centre are accessible to wheelchairs and wheelchair accessible picnic tables can be found in the car park and main picnic area.
A manual wheelchair is available to borrow from the Visitor Centre. This can be booked in advance to avoid disappointment (£10 deposit required), please telephone 01425 470721.
Two ‘Tramper’ mobility scooters are also available to hire as part of the South West Countryside Mobility Scheme. Please see the Countryside Mobilty Scheme page for details of how to join and membership fees.
Trandems - basically a bike with a wheelchair on the front – are also available to borrow from the cycle hire centre, allocated on a first come first served basis (£10 deposit required).
GPS Tracker Service
We have a GPS personal alarm facility to help vulnerable visitors to enjoy the countryside with peace of mind.
The GPS tracker has an SOS button which once pressed sends an accurate location to a mobile phone at the Visitor Centre, which is used to deploy immediate emergency support. It can also be used to pin point a location for visitors who do not return to the Visitor Centre before a specified time.
The device is free to use, however a £10 cash deposit and ID are required. Please call the Rangers on 01425 470721 if you would like more information.
Accessible toilets can be found at the Visitor Centre, Kingsmere Station and Golf Centre. The newly refurbished toilets at the Visitor Centre include a large toilet cubicle with tracking hoist system and height adjustable changing bench.
A platform to enable people in wheelchairs to fish is located on the Moors Lake.
Please note: at times of particularly high water, this platform may be submerged.
Disabled persons with vehicles that are tax exempt may park for free. Take a ticket on entry to the Park and then call in at the Information Point in the Visitor Centre with your tax disc or proof of tax exemption to claim your free parking.
Disabled (blue) badge holders pay normal car park charges.
