Our building is set back from the road a little way, if you begin indicating right at the garage you will see a gap in the grass verge where you can enter our front parking area.

From Clacton by Car

As you enter the village from Clacton you will come to a set of traffic lights where the A133 is joined by the A604 Bromley Road.  Continue along the A133 until you come to a pub on the left (The Kings Arms) there is a crossroads straight after the pub, and immediatley after the crossroads, still on the left, there is a private house and then Mr Pools, set back from the road.  You can pull in past the house and into our front parking area.
