Hi Jenny, this garden is vast and a lot of it involves steps and sloping paths ascending and descending well over 50m in hight across two thirds of the garden, there is a wheelchair route around the level section ( comprising the treefern valley, Italian garden, herbaceous border, maple boulevard, and the magnolia wood), although attempting more than that may be a struggle for anyone with mobility problems or pushing a wheelchair. We didn't see anything about wheelchair hire I am sorry to say.
Hope this helps
