Via M25 Jcn 7
Visitors may wish to consider leaving the M25 at jcn 7 for the M23, then leaving the M23 at Jcn 10
for East Grinstead and following the A22 heading north to reach us.
Leave the M25 at Jcn 6 and immediately as you go under the motorway follow the sign to
Godstone village. Go through the village past The Bell pub and take the turning on the right which goes down a small hill past Godstone Farm (a children's petting farm). Then follow the road to the end then turn right and you are back on the A22 (Eastbourne Road). Carry on through Blindley Heath and we are about a mile from the traffic lights at the end of the village, on the left hand side of the A22.
From the M25/North
Exit at M25 junction 6 (Godstone) and take the A22 South towards Eastbourne. We are about 10 minutes from Godstone, on the A22 itself, just past Blindley Heath (don't follow the road signs to Lingfield)
From the South
We are on the A22, just north of the roundabout at Newchapel (junction with B2028). We are about 10 minutes from East Grinstead, and 20 minutes from Crawley.
Unfortunately there are no scheduled bus services past our door, although residents of Tandridge District can use the special Buses4U service - a pre-booked flexible local service with no fixed timetable. Visit their web site at www.buses4u.org.uk or call 01372 20 45 40 to book.
The nearest train station is Lingfield on the London to East Grinstead line - from there you'll need a taxi, which will cost about £6 or £7. Unless you have a good Ordnance Survey map and are happy negotiating public footpaths across the fields (a lovely walk) we don't advise walking from the station due to the very busy road at the end of the route.
