Excellent, easily accessed and convenient road network including the Motorways M20, M25 & M26 and major roads including the A2 & A20.
DIRECTIONS BY CAR
We're close to exit 3 of the M25, so head for exit 3 of the M25. It's commonly known as the Swanley, or M20/A20 junction.
At exit 3, take the A20, following the signs for Brand's Hatch. Ignore the signs for the M20.
Go across the next two roundabouts (first after about 200 yards, the next after about a mile) still following the signs for Brand's Hatch.
Just under a mile after the second roundabout, you'll find yourself going up a long straight up-slope. Towards the top is a left turn signposted to Longfield. Turn left at this junction.
After another mile, there's another left turn signposted Longfield and Ash. Take that left turn.
Immediately after the left turn you go under a big bridge (it's the M20 motorway), and after that turn immediately right, signposted to Ash.
About 200 yards there's a left fork, going up the hill. Take the left fork, the name of the road is Roger's Wood Lane.
After about half a mile you come to a crossroads, with the Ash village sign straight ahead. Go straight over the crossroads.
About 200 yards up that road on the left is our drive, signed Nine
Acres. It's a steepish drive. Go up that, and park in the area you come to.
The entrance to the house and the B&B is up the steps on the right of the main garage and parking area.
