There are toilet facilities, including wheelchair-accessible facilities, at the Gallery. Rodd Court, unfortunately, does not have wheelchair access due to the age of the building.

Dogs

We are a dog friendly attraction.
You will find lots of water bowls around the site and lovely walks in our woods.
We ask that you:
• avoid taking dogs indoors (assistance dogs are welcome in all areas).
• keep them under control and on their lead at all times.
• clear up any accidents.
• ensure that you are respectful of other visitors who may not share your love for dogs.

Staying safe

Due to the historic nature of our buildings and site, there may be uneven surfaces in some places, as well as livestock in our fields. Please observe the necessary safety measures whilst on site and close all gates behind you if out in the fields.

  • Fishing

    The Hindwell Brook is a wild trout stream that gently meanders in an easterly direction from its origins in the Radnor Forest to join the river Lugg just below Presteigne. With just over a kilometre of classic riffle, glide, pool sequences, the Hindwell offers some excellent trout fishing.
