Arrival and Parking Facilities

Bore Place has a large car park at the entrance of the site. Access from this car park to the main site is on level ground but is 100m away. There are also several accessible parking spaces at the heart of the site offering shorter access to the site, including outside the Small Barn, the Old Stables and provisional places outside of Bore Place House.

Taxis and cars may drive to the front of buildings to drop off guests and luggage.
