Directions to Downlands Equestrian & other Information regarding your visit

There are several routes to Downlands, via either Sutton Veny, Bishopstrow or Heytesbury – the latter is not advised for large lorries as the turn is quite tight and there is a 3 tonne weight limit. (All vehicles should take note that the Heytesbury route can be especially bad on a Sunday morning when there are extra cars parked outside the church).

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

From the A36 Cotley Hill Roundabout, which is at the Eastern end of the Warminster bypass either (advisable) go straight on towards WARMINSTER town centre, once in BISHOPSTROW, at a mini roundabout, turn left towards SUTTON VENY and carry on this road until you come to TYTHERINGTON. 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.

Other Important Information

It would be gratefully appreciated if once on the farm entrance that you drive slowly (less than 10mph PLEASE) all the way up the drive as there are farm dogs, children and horses on the farm at all times.

Please park carefully and considerately. We respectfully ask that visitors DO NOT LET THEIR DOGS OUT ON THE PREMISES and please if you are spectating keep well clear of the XC fences.

Please note that that on arrival you must sign in
