By SatNav
Tomtom will take you to our front gate with the postcode. Garmin and others will take you within 100 yards. It takes about 2.5 hours from the edge of London and about 50 minutes from Bristol.

By car final part instructions 
We are located on the A4136 between Cinderford and Monmouth. As you drive through the village of Brierley you will see a BP petrol station (green and white) Take the forestry commission track directly opposite the garage on the other side of the main road where it says no public access (yes we are in the middle of the forest) follow this track the only way it will allow you vehicle access and you will come to EarthHeart after about 1/2 mile on the right had side. There is a long brown fence and a 5 bar gate. If you go up a very steep hill you have gone too far.

By train and coach
It is very easy to get to us by train and by coach. There are direct trains from London, Bristol, Devon and the north of England to Gloucester. It takes 2 hours from London direct and 50 mins from Bristol. There is also a direct coach from London Victoria that costs just £9.

Local bus 
Once you arrive at Gloucester you can get a local number 22 bus to Cinderford town, which takes 40 minutes, and they run roughly every 40 minutes. From Cinderford you can either walk the rest of the way which is about 20 minutes through the forest or you can catch a taxi, or another local bus no. 711 to Upper lydbrook, ask to be dropped off at the BP petrol station (this is the top of our track) 

Please note:
If  arriving in the dark on foot please bring a torch as the track is dark.
There is no mobile phone signal at EarthHeart itself (but there is by the road) so if you get delayed please call 07890 060394
