My husband, mother and I spent a very enjoyable 90 minutes here. Very friendly, informative owner, who has an obvious passion for his collection. Well worth a visit. Heads up though cash only to pay entrance fees.

There is a wheelchair lift I believe. But sadly there is limited space to get a wheelchair near to all the cars.

No, but there are three cafe's and toilets within sight. Moretonhampstead is very compact. There are also three food pubs also within the town and a few hundred paces.
