Go straight through Tytherington and Downlands Equestrian is 200 yards on your righthand side.

Alternatively, from the A36 Cotley Hill Roundabout, go into the village of HEYTESBURY, turn right by the Church – as mentioned above please bear in mind there is a tight turn and a narrow bridge (3 tonne limit) – once in TYTHERINGTON turn left and Downlands is 200 yards on your righthand side.
