Burrows Centre and Toilets
The Burrows Centre is open to the public from Easter weekend to the end of October, everyday from 10am-5pm. Public toilets are available all year, at the rear of the cafe building .The cafe serves hot and cold food and drinks. For the cafe opening times please ring the Pebble Ridge Kitchen on 01237424138

Restricted Mobility
People with prams pushchairs and wheelchairs may experience some difficulty in accessing all parts of the Burrows.  The park is a relatively natural area of dune and coastal grassland with much of it being flat or gently sloping. There is little hard surfacing but the natural grasses being short and grazed provide a fairly substantial surface.  There is a walkway at the end of Sandymere road across the Pebble Ridge for easier access to the beach. This does not suit all, as the ridge being a natural feature and the walkway man made so the higher tides can cause movement to the walkway and irregular stepping.  The main beach access is the slipway at Westward Ho!
