If you are driving and using SAT-NAV our postcode is LD8 2NB.
However, please be aware that some SAT-NAV’s enjoy taking you cross country, through tiny lanes which is not ideal.
(If you are using your mobile phone as a SAT-NAV please be aware that mobile reception within 5 miles of the farm is poor or non-existent – you will need to have an alternative method for the final miles.)
To avoid this we suggest you use way points and then follow our directions alongside the SAT-NAV
