Pierrepont Farm directions
coming from the west on the M4

The directions below have been written in good faith, using information available at the time (March 2011) and The Countryside Restoration Trust cannot accept responsibility for any delays or losses arising from their use. The directions are intended for visitors coming by car and the routes may be unsuitable for larger and/or heavier vehicles.

For satnav users, the postcode of Pierrepont Farm is GU10 3BP. (The postcode for the farm’s postal address is GU10 3BS but this shared with another property on the other side of the River Wey. If you put 3BS into your satnav, it will take you down a very narrow lane and deposit you on the wrong side of the river, where the only crossing is a narrow footbridge.)


Directions coming from the west on the M4
Leave the M4 at junction 10 and take the A329(M) south (signposted towards Reading (E), Wokingham and Bracknell).

After leaving the M4 carriageway, ignore signs to Reading (E) and follow signs to Wokingham and Bracknell.

This route assumes that you are avoiding the M25 through choice or because you have been warned of delays on it. If you wish to use the M25, our directions are here.

A couple of miles further on the road becomes the plain A329, a dual carriageway. Ignore signs for the A329 to Wokingham and stay on the road south towards Bracknell.

At the Doncastle Roundabout, go straight on, following signs for A329 Bracknell and Ascot.

At the Twin Bridges Roundabout be in the centre lane and take the second exit, following “Bagshot A322 (A30)”.

After the roundabout, the road narrows to one lane southbound and passes a fire station on the left. The road then changes to two lanes southbound. Subsequent roundabouts are unnamed.

At the next roundabout, take the 3rd exit (it’s shown as the 2nd exit on signs but there is a small road between exits 1 and 2) following “(M3) A322 Bagshot (A30)”. You are now on a dual carriageway all the way to the M3.

At the next roundabout follow “(M3) A322 Bagshot (A30)” again.

At the next roundabout go straight over (2nd exit), following the same signs.

You then come to a one-way system where you follow signs for the “(M3) A322 Bagshot (A30)” again and ignore signs for A322 Slough and Ascot.

The A322 then passes under the A30 and you carry on, following “(M3,M25) A322 Guildford, Lightwater and Bisley”.

A sign tells you to take the right hand lane for “M3 Basingstoke” and its road surface is marked “M3 West”.

Continue to follow signs for “Southampton, Basingstoke M3″.

Eventually you come to another roundabout where you need to be in lane 3. Turn right at this roundabout onto the M3 (junction 3), signposted Southampton and Basingstoke.

Leave the M3 at the next junction (junction 4), taking the A331 south (signposted Guildford, Farnham, Camberley and Farnborough — of these, the one you follow is Farnham).

The A331 is all dual carriageway and joins the A31 Farnham Bypass at a roundabout outside Aldershot. Take the A31 towards Farnham.

Follow the A31 to the Hickley’s Corner junction, just south of Farnham.

The junction is controlled by traffic lights and you need to be in the left filter lane, following the signs to Farnham Station.

Make the left turn into Station Hill (B3001), go over the level crossing next to Farnham station and turn immediately right before The Waverley Arms pub, into Tilford Road (this is not the same Tilford Road that runs north from the junction of the A3 and A287, mentioned in some of our other directions to Pierrepont Farm).

The distance from the level crossing to the entrance to Pierrepont Farm is 3.4 miles (5.5 kilometres).

Stay on the Tilford Road, passing Bourne Grove on your right and then going through a crossroads with Monks Walk on your left and Lodge Hill Road on your right. A sign here tells you it is 1¾ miles (2.8 kilometres) to Tilford.

As you approach Tilford, a blue sign on your left warns of a weight limit ¾ of a mile (1.2 kilometres) ahead and then you pass Sheephatch Lane on your left. The trees either side of the road give way to hedges and a brown and white sign points right to the Rural Life Centre, though there is no junction at this point. A little further on, a sign indicates a right hand bend ahead, with a minor junction off it.

Follow the road round this bend and you are now in The Reeds Road. Go up the hill and down the other side, passing the entrance to the Rural Life Centre on your right.

The entrance to Pierrepont Farm is at the next building visible on your left.

(If you find yourself going past Frensham Garden Centre on your left, you’ve gone too far.)

The telephone number of Pierrepont Farm is 01252 793559.


Alternative route from Hickley’s Corner
Make the left turn into Station Hill (B3001) and take the first right off Station Hill (just after The Mulberry hotel) into Approach Road, which passes in front of the station forecourt and continues past the station car park.

At the far end of Approach Road, turn left (south) onto the A287, which here is called Firgrove Hill. Immediately after the left turn you cross a bridge over the railway line.

Continue south along the A287 (which becomes Frensham Road) for about 2½ miles (4 kilometres). This brings you into Millbridge (though there is nothing to tell you this), where The Reeds Road comes into the A287 from the left. This is the turning for Pierrepont Farm.

In fact, there are two entrances to The Reeds Road. If you do not spot the first one — on the left, just before you pass The Village Workshop on the right — take the second, which is on the left just before The Bridge hotel on the right.

(If you come to a sign pointing to your left for Frensham Little Pond, you’ve gone too far.)

Follow The Reeds Road until you reach Frensham Garden Centre, on your right. The entrance to Pierrepont Farm is just past the garden centre, also on your right. The distance from the A287 end of Approach Road to the entrance to the farm is 3.2 miles (5.1 kilometres).

(If you find yourself going past the Rural Life Centre on your left, you’ve gone too far.)
