SatNav users please note : Entering "CB6 2DB" into your system will take you near the Village Hall, which is just across the road and a little bit down the hill from us.

Getting here by Car:

Access to Coveney is from the A10 or the A142, approx. 2 miles / 3 km from each road along small and winding country lanes, so please drive carefully.

From A142: The turn off to Coveney is between Witchford and Sutton. Drive slowly over the little bridge and follow the road into the village. Go straight ahead until you get to a T-junction with a turn-off to the right back to Ely. The Old School is straight ahead of you on the right with the entrance on Main Street, go through the single or double gates in the metal railings to the bottom of the school yard .

From A10: The turn off to Coveney is on the A10 between the Ely roundabout and the Little Downham roundabout. The road is mainly single track with passing places. Follow the road until you get into the village slightly up a hill. On top there is a T-junction with The Old School on your right. Drive round the grassy triangle with the chestnut tree on your right to get better access to the gate into the school yard.

Please note that we are NOT The School House at 10 Main Street. You have to go through the school yard to get to our front door. Please close the gate behind you carefully, our dogs might otherwise get onto the road !
