Lampost number 9
Sounds like the title of a song, but a lovely couple who stayed with us recently said "the only criticism we had was that the taxi driver could not find you." But the taxi driver said to them "Tell De Montalt Wood that all the taxi driver needs to know is that you are just past Lampost Number 9 in Summer Lane."
You see, each lamp post has a 4 inch white square with a its number written in black facing into the road. So anyone can find us by counting off the lamp posts to find Lampost 9, proceed for 10 meters and turn right, heading down our long drive. (See photos opposit). That assumes you are descending Summer Lane. If you are ascending, then count to Lamp Post 10 then proceed 30 yards and turn left into our drive.
On the weekends, its it best to book a taxi about half an hour in advance. It costs from £7-10 to get from our font door to various parts of central Bath.
