How To Find Us
To reach us take the Rivenhall End exit from the A12 sign posted Silver End and Great Braxted. Approaching from the London/M25 direction, the turn off is by the Fox PH, about ˝ mile past the second Witham exit from the A12. From the Colchester direction, the turn off is after Kelvedon, just past a BP garage and immediately after the Jarvis Rivenhall Hotel. Please be careful as the slip roads are very short!
In either case, after a few hundred metres, there is a T-junction at which you turn right. Follow the road for about 1 mile and cross Appleford Bridge over the River Blackwater (beware - hump back & single lane) and keep right at the next junction, (by the Commodity Centre and where the red brick wall starts).
Follow the B1022 for about 1 mile, then turn right into Station Road. There are plenty of signs pointing this way, including a brown Five Lakes sign followed by a B1023 Tolleshunt d’Arcy sign and finally a Station Road sign actually opposite the road. Station Road is just past a school on the right hand side and just before The New Times PH. Follow Station Road until the end, then turn right at the cross roads onto the actual B1023. Follow this past the Tiptree preserves factory and museum, then take the right fork at the mini roundabout further on, still on the B1023. Oxley House Cottage is on this road about 1 mile from the mini roundabout. When you come to the derestricted road sign, the road becomes quite straight and downhill. Oxley House Cottage is on the left, on the relatively straight stretch (resist the urge to get your foot down) just past a lane on the left. Look out for the triangular road on left sign. The first driveway past Blind Lane is that for Oxley House, followed shortly afterwards by that for Oxley House Cottage, just in front of the black weather boarded garage. The gate at the back leads to the cottage.

By Air From Stansted Airport
0 Leaving the short term car park (where you will collect your hire car) at Stansted Airport, all traffic has to head to a large roundabout where you take a 180° turn onto terminal road (the only exit).
0.7 At the next roundabout, take the first exit onto the local road, which brings you immediately to a small roundabout, where you take the second exit.
2.4 After about half a mile, turn left at the Takeley traffic lights, onto the A120 towards Braintree and Colchester. Follow the A120 for about 14 miles, by-passing Great Dunmow and Braintree.
17 About 2 miles after the A120 Braintree by-pass becomes dual carriageway, you reach a roundabout where you take the fourth exit onto the B1018 towards Witham
19 About 2 miles along the B1018 after leaving the A120, take a turning on the left called Temple Lane (just round a RH bend) towards Silver End.
20 After just under a mile, turn right in Silver End village and continue into Western Road for about another mile towards Kelvedon.
21 Take Park Road on the right (on the outside of a LH bend) towards Rivenhall. Follow Park Road (which becomes Church Road) through Rivenhall village and continue straight into Oak Road, passing under a railway bridge after about 2 miles.
23 After the railway, keep left on the main road, which becomes Henry Dixon Road which is where the slip roads from the A12 join and follow the map and instructions above.
