It is very easy to travel to Littleton Mill by train, with regular train lines to London operating from Chippenham (15 minutes drive away) and Westbury (10 minutes drive away) Trains to Chippenham go from London Paddington and take around 1 hour 10 minutes. Trains to Westbury from London Paddington and London Waterloo take around 1 hour 30 minutes. To book trains you can go to www.thetrainline.com. If you book in advance you can take advantage of cheaper fares. You can also book train tickets at www.nationalrail.co.uk/times_fares. We will either pick you up at the station for a small fee, or organise a taxi for you which you may be able to share with other guests. By car If you prefer to drive, Littleton Mill is situated on the A361 between Trowbridge and Devizes, about half a mile east of the junction with the A350. If you are driving on the M4 you can either take exit 14 and go through Hungerford, Marlborough and Devizes (the scenic route) or you can take exit 17 and drive through Chippenham and Melksham on the A350. From the Devizes, direction takes the first road on the right after the Lamb on the Strand pub into a country lane. If you are coming from the A350 direction we are the first left after a car dealer and lay-by on the right-hand side. Once you turn into the lane, Littleton Mill is the last house at the very end of the lane. We will send you a map when confirming your booking.
