From the Lymington/Beaulieu Road turn towards Norleywood, follow lane down a dip and up into 30 mph signs. You will see a red phone box on your left - ignore the right hand turn called Brook Hill and carry on, the road narrows and take the next right hand fork. Keepings is the fourth cottage on the right. Go past 5 bar gates to find your parking area at the end
