For those of you who don’t do old fashioned map reading you can enter these longitude and latitude co-ordinates in to your Sat Nav: 50.719875, -2.256937, i it is quite tricky to find so worth making a note of their directions(alternatively you can book your own accommodation nearby)

On the Saturday evening if the weather is good we shall plan to go to local shop to obtain BBQ food each or otherwise find local pub/restaurant or alternatively you might like to just cook your own food.
