Accessibility at Fibre Quest.

Fibre Quest takes place on a working farm high on the Mendip Hills.

We hope this event will be accessible to all, however

there are some important factors to take into account before you visit.

Parking

Regular parking is in a field adjacent to the show site. This is fine for all vehicles but

maybe slightly uneven ground. We recommend sturdy footwear such as walking boots,

trainers or wellies.

Disabled parking is available for blue badge holders. Please book a free disabled parking 

space at by clicking here.  Places are limited so please book considerately. When you book we will 

send you a parking space number. You must park in the allocated space and Blue Badges

must be shown on arrival. If you do not book a space we cannot guarantee availability.

Getting around the show

The main show is on level ground however there is a slope between the Shearing shed and car park down to the marquees and barns area.  This slope is not suitable for Wheelchairs however those with blue badges may drive between the upper and lower parts of the show. Our stewards will show you the way.

Both upper and lower yards are ok for wheelchairs as they are compacted stone, not loose gravel. 

Weather & what to wear

The farm is at 800ft and the weather up here can be inclement.

Umbrellas are definitely not recommended in the wind! Please wear warm clothes and bring a

waterproof if rain is forecast.  (We've ordered sunshine again but it's not always delivered on time!)

This year we have moved some of the show into warm and cosy buildings and changed the locations

of the marquees to ensure that we are able to keep you underciver more if the weather is poor.

 

The marquees are heated and we have a few cosy places you can warm up,   but some of your visit will be moving between various buildings so please bear this in mind.​​​​

Cafe

We have a new cafe serving meals in the Horsehoe Barns and will be serving  serving hot drinks and cake all day in the Barns Bar

Wifi

There is no public wifi available though 4G should usually work and phone signal is generally ok depending on your network.
