Daffodil LineDaffodil Bus Service

New for 2023 is the Daffodil Bus service running between Ledbury, Much Marcle, Newent and Ross-on-Wye.  If you are based in one of the towns served by the Daffodil bus why not be ‘green’ and support this new initiative?

The bus operates a ‘request stop’ service and will stop anywhere that is safe.  Just let the driver know where you would like to get off – the Memorial Hall, top of Hellens’ drive, near the top of the track to Gregg’s Pit or (on Sunday only) Westons Cider.

Details and timetable on the Daffodil Line website.

Getting around

Most venues are within walking distance of each other – eg the walk from Hellens to Westons Cider or to Awnells Farm takes around 20 to 30 minutes.

Tractor and trailer bus service
Westons Tractor and Trailer

A tractor and trailer service will operate between Westons Cider, Much Marcle Memorial Hall (for Hellens and St Bartholomews Church) and Awnells Farm (for Gregg’s Pit).

Woodredding Farm and Avenue Cottage are slightly further away – the walk from Westons to Woodredding Farm via the ‘top’ Lyne Down road past Avenue Cottage takes about an hour.

Car Parking Parking available

Westons has a large tarmac car park and there is a large field at Hellens for parking. Parking at other venues is more limited. Some field parking at Avenue Cottage and Lyne Down and there’s a small car park at the Memorial Hall.   There are only two or three spaces on the road by St Bartholomew’s Church so please leave these for people with blue badges. Gregg’s Pit has parking in a large field, but the access lane is very narrow – so be prepared to reverse if necessary.  Awnells has parking in the farmyard but do take care as this venue is popular with children.

We would ask you to be considerate to Much Marcle residents and not park in residential streets.

Please think about parking at Hellens or Westons and then walk to the other venues, or use the tractor and trailer service. 


Many venues are preparing fruit for processing or food so please bear in mind that dogs may not be allowed in certain areas such as orchards, where fruit may be on the ground awaiting collection, or The Great Barn at Hellens where apple tastings are served.  Please check the map for venues where well-controlled dogs are permitted.

Using SatNav?

Postcodes are provided for the main locations but please be aware that rural postcode areas can be quite large and you could be taken to a point some distance from the actual event – eg HR8 2LY is the postcode for a large area of Much Marcle – look out for the signs on the roadside when you near your destination
