Road Directions

DRIVING? We will send you the instructions and a map. It is about a 45 minute drive off the M4 or a 15 minute drive off the M5. There is parking but the track is a bit bumpy so if you have particularly low-sitting car - a Porsche? - you might want to park elsewhere!

Public Transport Directions

TAKE THE TRAIN The most pleasant way to get here is a train to Stroud and picking up a taxi from the station. It is a five minute drive and we can provide numbers for taxis. There are direct trains from London, Swindon and Cheltenham. If you are coming via Bristol, you may find it easier to travel to Cam & Dursley station, around 25 minutes away.
