We are just off the A30 between Cricket St Thomas and Crewkerne The postcode is TA18 8QY but don’t trust your Satnav, you will end up at Hill Dairy Farm!

If you are coming from Chard you will pass Cricket St Thomas on the right, the Cricket St Thomas Golf Club on the left and The Windwhistle Inn on the left. As you continue to climb up the hill you will see a large lay-by on the left and immediately after that a brown sign for “Chard Equestrian Centre” – turn right.

If you are coming from Crewkerne you will pass through Maincombe and Roundham before climbing up the hill through a wooded area. Towards the end of the wooded area, look out for the brown sign for “Chard Equestrian Centre” – turn left.

Approximately 0.25 miles along that road turn right into Chard Equestrian. The gate has a sensor, so drive slowly up to the gate and it will open automatically. We are in the large brown hangar at the bottom of the hill and the double entrance doors are towards the left hand end of the hangar as you look at it.

Can we bring our own Wasp?
(Only joking, sadly.)
