Map & Directions
From the North - Swindon, Hungerford or M4, - via Pewsey to Huntlys Farm, Manningford Abbotts.
Take the Salisbury( A345 ) road out of Pewsey, passing the church on L and then Q8 garage on L. Travel approx. 1 mile past turning to R signed Sharcott. Take next turn R signed Manningford Abbotts – there is a red brick house called Milford on R as you turn.
From the South or West via A303 and A345 to Upavon, or Devizes and A342, turning L in Rushall.
When you reach the Woodbridge roundabout, take A345 signed to Pewsey. Pass the turn L to Manningford Bruce. and take the next turn L to Manningford Abbotts – there is a red brick house on the R as you turn.
Follow this narrow road through sharp RH bend, over small river bridge and past a junction to R (Sharcott). Huntlys is next house on R with a straw horse on the roof. Look for long box hedge, opp. low brick wall with post box in it. Go past the brick annexe built onto the roadside - The Skilling – and drive into 2nd entrance, turning sharply down into our yard. Hope this is detailed enough!
Coming from Devizes or Avebury via Alton Priors and Wilcot, take the lane directly past the Golden Swan on your R then turn R at the next junction, go straight over the crossroads, over the railway bridge , turning immediately L (signed Manningford Abbotts), and Huntlys is the third house on the LHS. You will see a large Dutch barn and a small bungalow on the road called The Skilling. Turn L just before the Skilling and sharp R down into our yard.
