ow to find us
Travelling by car & parking
Turn End is located 3 miles north east of Thame and 5 miles south west of Aylesbury. Turn off the A418 to Haddenham. In the village centre, turn at the Rising Sun pub into Townside. Turn End is located opposite Dovecote.
Turn End was created as a family home, as such there is no visitor parking at the house or garden. We are located in the historic centre of Haddenham village and there is free, but limited, on street parking on surrounding roads. Please park with consideration for our neighbours, parking on wider areas of road and avoiding driveways.
If possible, please park at a distance and enjoy walking through the village to visit us. Please download a village map here to find your way to us.
Travelling by coach
If travelling by coach, we recommend that you approach via the wider roads of Thame Road - Marriotts Lane - Dovecote and disembark on Dovecote, if possible. As we are located on a narrow residential road, parking for large vehicles is limited in the vicinity, so coaches may wish to drop off guests and park elsewhere during your visit.
Travelling by Train
We are a 10-15 minute walk from Haddenham & Thame rail station.
Travelling by Bus
Route 280 Aylesbury-Oxford bus passes through the village centre. We are a few minutes' walk from the bus stop opposite the Rising Sun pub (from Oxford) or opposite the House of Spice restaurant (from Aylesbury).
Visiting the House and Garden
Dogs are welcome in the garden (not in the house) on a lead.
If you are coming to an event in the house, we ask that visitors please either remove footwear or wear the plastic shoe covers we provide.
