How to get there

Do Not use Sat Navs if towing or driving coach or lorry - see below:

From the M20: if towing or driving a coach or lorry. DO NOT use Junction 7.  Leave the motorway at junction 8 (Leeds Castle) and follow signs to Maidstone A20.  After joining the A20 carry on for approx. one mile and look for first turning on right just after The Potted Garden, Garden Centre on right.  Turn right, road is called Roundwell.  Then take first right again, Water Lane.  Go to end of Water Lane, passing under 3 bridges.  You will pass entrance to Cobham Manor Equestrian Centre on your right.  At little staggered crossroads go straight over into Coldblow Lane.  The last section of road is single track and is steep uphill but you only have another half mile before Coldblow Farm's entrance is first property on the right.

From Detling Village: only use this route if travelling by car (not towing):  leave the M20 Motorway at junction 7 (Sheerness) and take the first exit left A249 (in the direction of Sheerness and Detling). Very soon after joining the A249 move into the right-hand/fast lane so that you can turn right/east into Detling Village. Take care crossing the other carriageway.  Follow the lane up into the village and just after the village shop look for a narrow turning on the right, the Pilgrims Way, opposite the Cock Horse Pub. Turn here in the direction of Thurnham.

After one mile, at Thurnham, the Black Horse Pub, go straight across the crossroads signposted to Hucking. Take the next left-hand turning, a staggered crossroads into Coldblow Lane, signposted to Hucking. Coldblow Farm is half a mile up the steep hill, the first farm on the right.
