Directions & Travel Info:
From the B2163, pass Marlpit Farm on your left and go straight at the crossroad. The sanctuary’s drive is a sharp right after a few hundred yards. Follow the tree-lined driveway, watch for speed humps, and turn left through double gates into the carpark. Public transport is limited; the nearest bus stop is around a mile away at Marlpit Farm (Bus routes 59, 66, 89). Walking from the stop involves country roads or footpaths from Chart Sutton or Linton. Alternatively, take a train to Maidstone East/West or Staplehurst Station, then a 10/15-minute taxi ride to Buttercups.
