You will see a sign on the inside of a lane to your right for the Fox and Hounds pub; you can take this turning to access the house via the front door.

Private parking is available to the rear of the house. To access it, don't take the lane that leads to the Fox and Hounds, but take the next right (just a few meters further on) and drive into The Gather (the large wooden panelled building) and follow the gravel track until you reach the unenclosed parking area of no.6.
There is room for 2 cars to park in front of the garden shed. A path leads into the garden.
