You can arrive from 2pm. If you think you will get here much past 8pm please let us know so that we can arrange to be here for you.
Dont worry. We live on site, so we can arrange to be there for you, but if it is very late at night, it may be difficult to have you arrive without disturbing everyone. Please get in touch so that we can help.
Try and get off at the junction before and follow signs to Bearsted village. Turn left onto the A20 and you will get back to the first roundabout in our directions. If you are coming from the east get of at junction 9 in Ashford and follow signs to Lenham then follow our instructions.
If Operation ‘Brock’ is in place, keep right on the Motorway to pass the lorries if you can but still GET OFF at junction 8. If the motorway is too busy, get off at junction 7 to come through Bearsted, or junction 6 to go through Maidstone town centre.
If the M20 is closed further back, use the M2 and then the A229 to Maidstone.
