Map & Directions

1) Coming from the direction of London and Henley:
Cross Henley bridge and turn right at the town centre traffic lights into Bell Street. Keep to the left-hand lane and take the A4130 Nettlebed / Wallingford road at the next roundabout. Go about a mile, then fork right at a junction just before the A4130 becomes a dual carriageway. This right-hand turn is the B480, signposted to 'Assendons & Stonor'.

After 150m, fork left down a very narrow lane by a blue sign saying 'Unsuitable for HGVs'. Orchard Dene Cottage is 150m further on, the first house on the left (look for our 5-bar gate beside a 'B&B' sign, and ignore an open driveway to "Orchard Dene" just before this). We have ample off-road parking space.

2) If you come from the Oxford/Wallingford direction:
A mile or two after Nettlebed the A4130 becomes a dual carriageway at Bix. At the lower end of this dual carriageway, down a long hill, turn off left. The minor road (the B480) is signposted to 'Assendons & Stonor'.

After 150m, fork left down a very narrow lane by a blue sign saying 'Unsuitable for HGVs'. Orchard Dene Cottage is 150m further on, the first house on the left (look for our 5-bar gate with a 'B&B' sign, and ignore an open driveway to "Orchard Dene" just before this). We have ample off-road parking space.

3) Should you come off the M40 at junction 6, travelling from the north:
Turn right on to the B4009, go under the motorway and continue to Watlington. Here, there's a T-junction with the B480; turn left towards Nettlebed. After two miles and soon after reaching the top of a long hill the B480 turns off left [see * below] and the B481 goes straight on to Nettlebed. In the dark it is best to go to Nettlebed; there, turn left when you reach the A4130 - see above (2).

[*] An alternative 'scenic route' for the daytime is to stay on the B480 instead of going to Nettlebed, dropping down through Pishill, Stonor and Middle Assendon. At Lower Assendon, see the 'Golden Ball' pub on your right; about 200m after this, turn right (at a very sharp angle) up the 'Unsuitable for HGVs' lane - see above (1, 2).
