Finding your Property
When you arrive at the main gates at Lower Mill where the security hut is, please follow the road over the bridge around to the left past a visitor car park on your left-hand side.
You will come to a four-way crossroads where you will turn right and go over the next bridge. Just after the bridge, there is a turning to the right, ignore this turning and carry on straight through an area where you will see houses and parking on either side of the road. After the houses and parking spots, you will reach an area where there are two long sheds lining either side of the road. Go past these sheds and there will be a few further houses on your left-hand side. Just after these houses, you will see a turning on your left-hand side that leads into a small car park. Your property, Butterfly Sound, and its car parking spot are the first on the right-hand side of this car park.
