Haystax Inclusive Farm Experience Centre has a vision to provide a safe place for everyone to visit, while enjoying quality time experiencing the amazing surrounding countryside. As it is an inclusive venue, it welcomes everyone.
The Haystax Experience was designed to accommodate the requirements of those with special needs and disabilities in mind. And as the needs of their diverse customers are met, it allows them to create a calmer and more assessable experience
The beautiful welcoming Coffee Shop which opened on the first day of February and serves amazing coffee and cakes is open from Wednesday to Saturday at
The café also has a Changing Places toilet facility and three sensory rooms that have been designed with a range of needs in mind.
As of now, the first two accessible luxury holiday lodges are available for rental. Chestnut Lodge and Cherry Lodge are well designed and have a luxury feel about them, allowing the accessibility features to fade into the background. This in turn provides a homely and welcoming atmosphere.
Each lodge has a hot tub with a mobile hoist, an accessible bedroom with a wet room and a smart toilet, a spacious open-plan living space with room to accommodate wheelchair users, a rise-and-fall chair, and a bank of additional extras on request.
There are plans for an open day on Sunday 26th March 2023. Go along and explore the development, and meet the dedicated team and get a taste of what they have to offer. There will be an opportunity to try out the sensory rooms, meet some of the animals, take part in a forest school session, enjoy a coffee and slice of cake and speak to some of the organisations working with them.
On the day, every purchase over £5 in the coffee shop will earn you a raffle ticket for the prize draw where you could win a 2-night stay in one of the luxury lodges.
This is well worth a visit.
