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 ans white) Take the forestry commission track directly opposite the garage on the other side of the main road and follow it 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.
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.
Once you arrive at Gloucester you can get a bus (number 22, at the Gloucester bus station which is right next to the train station) to Cinderford, which takes 40 minutes, with buses running roughly every 40 minutes. From Cinderford it’s either a 20-minute walk, or you can catch the local no. 711 bus to Brierley. Below is a link to the bus timetables for your convenience.
If you prefer to walk rather than catch the local 711 bus, then the stop on the timetable you want is Upper Lydbrook and the journey from Gloucester takes an hour.
When you get off the 711 bus take the forestry commission dirt track the only way it allows vehicle access and you will come to EarthHeart on your right hand side about 1/2 mile along.
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 our LANDLINE 01594 861200
