Croydon Hall is best reached via the M5. Junction 23 (from the north) is 24 miles away and Junction 25 (from the south) is 20 miles. We can send you a detailed itinerary from your town to Croydon Hall on request.
From the north, come off the M5 at Junction 23 (Bridgwater), travelling south on the A38. At Bridgwater, follow signs to Minehead and the A39. At Williton, take the A39 towards Minehead (turning right at the mini-roundabout at the Spar convenience store).
To reach us from the south, turn off the M5 at Taunton (Junction 25) and follow the signs to Minehead (A358). At Williton, turn left at the mini-roundabout on to the A39 at the Spar convenience store.
Pass through the village of Washford, and after about one third of a mile take the left turn at the first crossroads, sign-posted "Croydon Hall", just before the Dragon House Hotel. Follow this lane for a mile and take the first turning right, following the sign to "Croydon Hall". Drive up this road ignoring any turnings off until you come to two big stone pillars, with a post box in the wall next to the left-hand one and a sign saying "Private Road" on the other. There is another sign here saying "Croydon Hall".
Go through these pillars. We are a few houses down on the left. Outside there is a sign saying "Croydon Hall". You are here!
