The nearest rail stations are at Wanborough (2 miles), Farncombe (4.5 miles), Guildford (5 miles) and Godalming (5 miles).
The 65 bus runs a short walk from the barn - details from Stagecoach. The position of the westbound stop has been changed. It is now 15 mins walk away in a layby near the Hog's Head cafe towards the west on the A31. The eastbound stop on the A31 is still close to the barn.
A tip from a visitor:
Although it is not obvious, you can also walk to the barn from the Hog's Head Cafe without having to walk along the busy road. You simply walk through the area with picnic tables in front of the cafe and there is a gate in the fence - then follow the hedge until there is a small wooded area in the way, at which point you veer to the right down a path that leads down the hill to the village.

We created a booklet to help you find the route from Godalming station to the barn - download and print double-sided on A4 paper, then fold the sheets in half and put them in order.
Or you can look at the route on plotaroute.com (route ID 365296) and use the interactive map.
We also created a booklet to help you find the route back from the barn to Farncombe station - just as before download and print double-sided on A4 paper, then fold the sheets in half and put them in order.
Or you can look at the route on plotaroute.com (route ID 405130) and use the interactive map.
With a little bit of improvisation these routes of course work in the opposite directions too. Farncombe and Godalming stations are about one mile apart on the same rail line between London Waterloo and Haslemere.
Thanks to Martyn Sandford for the hard work creating these walking routes.
Don't forget that when you ride your cycle here you can make free use of our wonderful lockable cycle shed. Our cycle shed is one of the finest in Surrey, designed by cyclists for cyclists, of ample size, with cycle racks inside yet still able to accommodate tandems or a tricycle. Depending on where you're coming from, you may be able to find quiet country lane routes and off-road bridleways to arrive here, instead of busy main roads.
We don't make a habit of recommending software, but there is one map app that is so good it deserves including. Pocket Earth is from a pair of outdoor nuts who call themselves Geomagik LLC, and is available for Apple devices now and Android is promised for the future. It uses OpenStreetMap information and includes easy downloading for off-line use. The basic app is free, but the paid Pocket Earth Pro app is seriously worth the small amount of money asked.
