Showborough House is conveniently situated close to the A38, M5 and M50 and is easy to find with a little guidance. Some satellite navigation systems leave people on the M5, part of which has the same postcode, so the final mile from Twyning is best followed the old-fashioned way, by map or the instructions below.
We are one mile from the centre of the village of Twyning. From the village War Memorial take the road signposted to Hillend, Strensham and Pershore. After ½ mile turn right, signposted Showborough and Downfield. At the bottom of the hill turn left, signposted Showborough. Showborough House is the first property on the right.
Twyning is signposted off the A38 three miles north of Tewkesbury (towards Worcester) in the hamlet of Shuthonger, almost opposite the Hilton hotel.
Twyning is also signposted off the slip-road of the west-bound M50 junction 1 (for Malvern), one mile from junction 8 of the M5. If east-bound on the M50 leave at junction 1 (Tewkesbury), go under the motorway, then 50 yards up the M50 West slipway before turning right for Twyning, signposted to Brockeridge Business Park.
Visitors from Pershore may approach from Defford on the Pershore to Upton-upon-Severn road. Twyning is signposted just after Defford by the farm shop. Go through Strensham. Showborough is signposted to the left on the outskirts of Twyning.
Parking at Showborough House is indicated on the common and in the adjacent field. People with mobility problems may find it easier to avoid the gravel drive and enter the garden from the field.
