You will probably be coming from the South East or the North, so lets start with the South East and assume you have made it to Dorchester. Stay on the A35 and follow the signs to Bridport or it may say Exeter. Stay on the main road to Bridport which is about 10 miles. We have been told many SAT Navs tell you to come off at Winterbourne Abbas and follow the old roman road across country……just don’t do it, unless you are the adventurist type. Anyway you arrive in Bridport and at the first roundabout take the 3rd exit north towards Beaminster. Keep on this road for about 4 miles until you reach Melplash where you turn right just before the garage and opposite the Half Moon Pub. Go up to the top of the hill (about 1km) and you will come to an odd junction with a ‘not suitable HGV sign’, but we have now put a sign post up for Loscombe so its a bit easier. Take this right turn and head down into the valley, as you go down you will think you have just entered the film set for ‘the land that time forgot’, obviously without the Dinosaurs ! or perhaps not….anyway keep going until you get to the bottom of the hill where there is a very tight left hand turn. You are now at Charity Farm, do not go around the bend but instead turn right down the track and park at the garage. At this point you can go through the gate, down the field and across the bridge but we would only advise you do this if unloading and have a 4×4 to be honest. However we should be around, but just knock on the door and would be happy to take your luggage down for you and you can concentrate on getting a bottle of open !
From the North, M5 or A303 just follow the signs to Crewkerne, odd little town and hard to navigate, but follow the signs for Dorchester (A356) to get out of town, if you are on the right road you will go past the train station on the left hand side, keep going to village of Miserton and just after leaving the village you will arrive at crossroads, turn right onto the A3066 heading for Beaminster and Bridport. Beaminster is a further 5 miles, go through the town heading for Bridport and continue until you get to Melplash where you turn left at the garage with the Half Moon Pub on the right hand side, and then just follow the directions from above.
