Travelling from the M4, come into Newbury on the A339 and turn left signposted A4 Thatcham and Reading. Stay on the A4. You will pass the Mercedes dealership on your right.

Stay on the A4 straight over a roundabout and you will see B&Q on your right and the Newbury Business Park on your left. Pass the Swan Public House on your left and you will see a set of traffic lights ahead of you.

Go straight over these lights and we are the fourth house on the left. We have a large conifer tree at the front of the house, just drive in and you will be able to park at the front of the premises.


Nationally we are only a five minute drive from junction 13 of the M4, an hour from the centre of London by rail and a little more by road. Oxford City is thirty five minutes by road. We are so easy to find, even without sat nav. If you are having difficulty just go to our directions page within this site.

Locally, we are conveniently placed a short walk from the Newbury Business Park between Newbury and Thatcham and there are local eateries a short walk away. We can point you in the right direction to any number of restaurants in the nearby lovely Berkshire countryside.

The River Kennet and the Kennet and Avon Canal are a stones throw away and is a hive of activity during the fishing season and the summer months. We are also only a short hop into the town centres of Thatcham and Newbury.

We are often used as a stop-over for travellers using the London airports. We are a forty five minute journey from Heathrow and Southampton Airport and docks are less than an hour away. Foreign visitors often drive out from London and use us as a base to visit many places of interest. Stone Henge, Oxford, the Cotswolds, Highclere Castle, to mention only a few.

Newbury is the home of Vodafone HQ and many associated companies. Contract workers from AWE Aldermaston also use our facilities as we are only a fifteen minute drive away.
