From Ludlow Take the A4117 towards Cleobury Mortimer. After half a mile turn left onto the B4364 towards Bridgnorth. Continue through Middleton for approx 2.5 miles, then turn right onto Lackstone Lane to Clee Stanton. This lane dips down then rises until you come to Stanton Farm on the right, opposite a junction. Do not turn at the junction (the satnav may ask you to do so) but continue. Timberstone is the stone house, third on the right past Stanton Farm and has a gravel drive. Welcome!
