      Map & Directions

      Road Directions

      From the North or East: Follow the M27 Motorway and leave at junction 1. At the roundabout take the third exit onto the B3079. When you reach the village of Brook turn left onto Roger Penny Way, the B3078. Continue for 7 miles until you reach Godshill. You will see Sandy Balls Holiday Centre on your right at the bottom of the village, a further 100 metres take the next right onto a gravel track "Wayside" is the second house and is at the end of this track. From the West: From either Salisbury or Ringwood follow the A338 until you reach Fordingbridge. You do not have to enter Fordingbridge town centre - Godshill is clearly signposted from the ring road. Follow the B3078 out of Fordingbridge and up the hill for approximately 1 mile. As you drive into Godshill you will pass the entrance to Arniss Riding Stables on your right and a gravel track on your left as you enter a 30mph area and then you'll see Sandy Balls Holiday Centre on your left ahead of you. Turn left into the next gravel track  half way between the 30 sign and Sandy Balls. Wayside is the second house and is at the end of this track.
