Directions & getting here
FROM M5 / NORTH: (about 35 minutes from the motorway)
Leave the M5 at the Gordano Services junction. Take the A369 towards Bristol - you'll go through Abbots Leigh and down a very steep hill. At the end of this road, you will reach a half-roundabout - go straight across, under a small flyover and around to the right.
This brings you onto the A370 heading out of Bristol. Follow this road - goes up a long hill, then turns into dual carriageway. Shortly after end of dual carriageway you'll see a slip road off to the left - the B3130 to Barrow Gurney - follow this road around, turning right onto the B3130. At the end of the B3130, turn right at the traffic lights onto the A38.
Stay on the A38 and go past Bristol Airport. After the airport you'll go down a huge hill - Redhill - also the name of the village on the hill. At the bottom, there are a couple of bends, then a turning on the left marked to Blagdon & Burrington. Turn left there, and go to the end. At the end, turn right onto the A368 (ignoring the sign to Blagdon pointing left), then take the second left (B3134) to Burrington Combe - travel up the Combe to the top, where you'll see a turning on the left to Blagdon. This is Ellick Road. Turn into Ellick Road, go past the small lane called Newfields (please do not turn into this lane, it is a private drive) and we're the first white cottage on the left.

Leave the M4 at the Bristol junction and travel into Bristol on the M32. Follow signs for Bristol Airport.

FROM M5 / WESTON SUPER MARE JUNCTION: (about 25 minutes from the motorway)
Leave the M5 at the Weston Super Mare junction. Take the A370 travelling towards Bristol. At the traffic lights on a sharp bend at Congresbury, turn right towards Langford / Churchill. When you reach the mini roundabout turn right and almost immediately afterwards, at Budgens garage, turn right onto the main A38. Within a few yards, turn left into a small lane called Says Lane. At the end of Says Lane turn left onto the A368. Take the next turning right into the (B3134) to Burrington Combe - travel up the Combe to the top, where you'll see a turning on the left to Blagdon.

From Salisbury take the A36 towards Warminster. Don't go into Warminster, but continue on the A36 around Warminster until you come to a roundabout with a turning left onto the A362 (signposted to Frome, Cley Hill, and/or Longleat).
You will pass Cley Hill on your right (big hill-fort, can't miss it!) and go right at a mini roundabout near the entrance to Longleat. After several miles, you will come to a 'T' junction - turn left here onto the A361 and continue on the A361 around Frome and towards Shepton Mallet.
At Shepton Mallet you will reach a large crossroads, turn right here onto the A37 towards Bristol. After a couple of miles you will see a garage and pub on the right and on that crossroads, turn left onto the B3135.
Continue on the B3135, going straight across a staggered crossroads (crossing the B3139) then continue on the B3135, going across a crossroads with traffic lights at Green Ore (crossing the A39). Continue along the B3135 and take the second turning on your right onto the B3134. Continue on the B3134, along the top of the Mendip Hills.
As you drop down the other side of the hill, do not take the road called 'Two Trees' signposted to Blagdon, but slow down a bit (!) and continue a little further and you will come to the 'North Somerset' County sign on the left-hand side of the road - turn right here into Ellick Road. Once in Ellick Road, go past the small lane called Newfields (please do not turn into this lane, it is a private drive) and we're the first white cottage on the left.
Leave Bath on the A4 towards Keynsham. At the end of the dual carriageway just outside Bath you reach the roundabout with the pub - take the A39 and continue on this road without turning off (at Marksbury it becomes the A368). Continue on the A368 until you reach Chelwood roundabout - go straight across, continuing on the A368. Eventually you'll reach Blagdon village. Turn left, at the Seymour Arms pub, which is on a very sharp right-hand bend. This road is called Street End. Go up the hill until the road forks - take the right-hand fork, which is Ellick Road. We're the last white cottage on the right-hand side. If you see a small lane on the right called Newfields, or reach the main road, you have gone too far.
We would be very grateful if you could follow these directions and not knock on any other neighbouring properties. If you cannot find us, please ring us on the number in your confirmation email. Thank you.
