- The car park for Lucy’s guests is approximately 600 metres further along the road on the right-hand side. (Ignore the arrow in the road at the junction by the Post Office, just continue straight ahead.) Refer to this map for details. Unlock the padlock on the white, up-and-over garage door (height: 1.85m) marked “Upper Coombes Parking”. (If there is no padlock, the garage door is already open.)
