There are no surfaced paths here. In the open parkland the short grassy trails can be steep in places, however families with pushchairs should be able to find a suitable route. There are a number of easy access routes laid through the woods, which in dry weather, are suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs. These paths are unsurfaced and can become muddy in the winter months. Other routes/paths may be accessible to wheelchair users with assistance.

Stanmer village is located beside Proud Country House. The church is open to visitors every Sunday (excluding Christmas Day when it falls on a Sunday) from 2-4pm during winter and 2-5pm from when the clocks go forward in Spring (late March).

Toilet facilities, including an accessible toilet, are available in the village, opposite the Tea Rooms.
