Directions
We are situated off Bedford Road between Old Warden and Cardington (nearest to Old Warden) in Bedfordshire. Unfortunately we are a little tricky to find so you may want to allow plenty of time!

From Old Warden, the East and A1 :

Exit the A1 at the Biggleswade North roundabout, turning onto the B658/Hill Lane. At the next roundabout, go straight ahead towards Old Warden (follow brown tourist signs for Shuttleworth and Old Warden Park).  Continue straight on through Old Warden village. After passing through the village, at the bend at the top of the hill, turn right at the junction, signposted for Cardington and Bedford.  After about half a mile, the entrance to the vineyard is found on the left hand side of the road.  There is a double metal gate opening into the field.  We haven't got proper signage yet and the vineyard itself can't be seen from the road.  When new visitors are expected, a white wooden sign with a picture of a bunch of grapes on is put out on the road verge on the day at the gate into the field. 

Once in the field, follow the track round to the left. Please note this can get muddy in wet weather.

From Cardington

From the Bedford Bypass A421/ A603, you enter Cardington and arrive at the T-junction at the green (with the Kings Arms pub on your left).  Turn right onto Southill Road. After around 3 miles, you will pass a small road forking to the right.  Continue on the main road and the entrance to the vineyard is on your right, about quarter of a mile beyond the fork. 

There is a double metal gate opening into the field.  We haven't got proper signage yet and the vineyard itself can't be seen from the road.  When new visitors are expected, a white wooden sign with a picture of a bunch of grapes on is put out on the road verge on the day at the gate into the field.
