  • For b&b guests please park in front of house to unload car, or in the little walled courtyard next to the house.
  • For large events please use signed car park.
  • For Tudor barn self-catering guests, park next chestnut paling fence (not in front of cartlodge as this blocks other vehicle/emergency access).
