Please ensure you use these directions and do not rely solely on Sat Nav. There are two entrances to Eastacott Barton. One is the entrance to our property and does not have access to the holiday properties. Sat Nav is likely to send you to the wrong entrance. Also please ignore any instruction from Sat Nav to turn into our neighbours property at Pitt Farm.
The best way to ensure you arrive at the correct entrance is to use the what3words app. The what3words for Eastacott Barton are //tailwind.sublet.autioned.
