From Ashford, M20 & A20

Take Junction 9 off the M20, and at the motorway roundabout follow signs for Tenterden A28.
You will go round several roundabouts, and through traffic lights, but stay on the A28 - Tenterden road.
After travelling for about 6 miles you will come to the village of Bethersden. Stay on the main road, do not turn right into Bethersden. You will pass the:
- Rocking horse workshop on your right,

Continue on the main road - down the hill, over the small bridge.
Start to slow down, as we are about 150 metres further on (2nd drive on left), before the next bend.

Please be careful and do not travel too fast and miss the turning. The first drive on the left is the old entrance to Bullbridge Farm and is usually closed. The next entrance, is to the Barn - about 15 metres. 

Turn left at the traffic mirror, through the entrance gate, and then immediately right past the front of "The Stables". Continue through the next gate where you will find The Old Barn. 

There is a sign on the main road outside The Old Barn, but we are obliged to keep our gate shut.

If you go past The Old Barn, you can turn around further on up the hill, either at Greenways Garden Centre or Restaurant 136

Again - Please be careful and do not travel too fast and miss the turning.

"The stables" is made of brick and the Barn is a dark brown timber building.

Please ring the bell at The Old Barn - not "The Stables".

Our local station is Pluckley which is 3 miles, however there is no public transport available to Pluckley.

The bus going past the barn will take you all the way to Tenterden and Rye in one direction, or to Canterbury in another. A nice trip would be to travel from the barn to Rye in East Sussex on the bus, have a look at the famous town of Rye with Mermaid street and all its cobbled streets, travel back to Ashford on the Train over the Marshes, and complete your journey back to the barn from Ashford by bus. A really good day out with magnificent scenery
