Arrival by coach

Coach parties are always welcome

Small coaches and minibuses can park in our car park, but the narrow roads on our estate cannot accommodate larger coaches (more than 22 seats). Group organisers will need to inform their drivers that large coaches can enter through the main gates and drop off in the main courtyard in front of the hall, but must then leave the property and return to pick up the group at an agreed time. Coach parking can be found at the sea front or the lay-by outside the church to the west of the site.
