From the A50 take the A515 towards Lichfield.
Ignore all signs to Marchington, until you have left Draycott in the Clay.
At six roads end - signed for Burton to the left, take the right turn to Marchington. (Fourth turning to Marchington since leaving the A50). Continue along this road (Forest Road), bear right at the fingerpost, and down a steep hill through the wood. (Marchington Cliff) The drive is on the left just past the cottage. Please continue over the cattle grid along the drive(singletrack with passing place)to the very end and check-in at the Farmhouse. There is room to turn in the yard.
Forestside is only a 25-minute drive to Alton Towers with its sensational rides and attractions, as is the Peak District, Ashbourne and the former Royal Hunting forest of Cannock Chase, where one of Britain's largest herd of Fallow Deer roams free.
Drayton Manor Park is a little further away, but with an award-winning Zoo, it is well worth the visit. Waterworld and the home of Wedgewood in the "Potteries" at Stoke on Trent makes a great day out, as does Carsington Water in the Peak District.
There are many National Trust properties within easy reach, Sudbury Hall, Kedleston Hall, and Calke Abbey are all splendid places visit. The National Arboretum is also in easy reach, as is Tutbury Castle and the National Forest Adventure Farm.
