Coach Parties – parking
Coach parties and groups are welcome by appointment.
We are open to parties of ten or more in afternoons and evenings from May to September, inclusive – in cars or coaches. There is a car park at the garden but coaches need to park elsewhere:
Important parking information
Postcode NP16 6PH Address Veddw House, The Fedw, Devauden, Monmouthshire.
You will have to drop people off at the top of the lane marked The Fedw then park up (see below) and collect later at an agreed time. The lane is too narrow for coaches, even small ones. Please warn your coach driver NOT to attempt it. Seems obvious – there is a ‘no HGVs’ sign, but recently one did, got stuck and badly damaged his coach.
Please take care that the coach does not block the entrance to the lane or obscure the exit for cars from the lane for anything but the shortest possible time. (for the sake of our neighbours)
Parking is available in The Forestry Car Park a short distance from The Fedw turning, through the woods. The Forestry car park seems to have a mobile signal – useful if you need to contact the driver. Parking for coaches is also available in Devauden, beside the village hall. However – there is not a reliable mobile signal in Devauden.
Your party need to take the first entrance down the lane on the right, into our car park, then take the path by the gate into the garden.
If people have difficulty walking it is quite a short way down the lane to the garden. If they cannot then reach the lower garden I will be happy to give them a lift from there if the group leader lets me know when you arrive. There is a seat where they can wait, but do warn them that they will miss the best, dramatic view of the garden. I can also give a lift back up to the coach later.
