Getting Here

Air:

There are a variety of ways to get to us in Skillington. Here are some of the most popular ways to help you plan your visit.

Most of our visitors choose to fly into London Heathrow but there are other options for those who do not wish to fly to London. There are very good flight options to Birmingham Airport that offer a quick change in Europe or the Middle East.

Airlines that fly to their respective countries and then onto Birmingham are;

  • KLM (via Amsterdam)
  • Air France (via Paris)
  • Swiss International Airlines (via Zurich)
  • Turkish Airlines (via Istanbul)
  • SAS (via Copenhagen)
  • ANA (via Brussels)
  • Emirates Airlines (via Dubai)

Another UK airport option is Stanstead Airport via a European changeover or Manchester Airport from the US or Canada.

Both airports have easy rail links to us. We can pick you up, free of charge, from one of our local railway stations, Melton Mowbray or Grantham. The choice is yours.

Private Taxi:

We have a link with Gary a professional, licensed, friendly taxi driver who offers a pick up and drop off service to and from Heathrow Airport and other areas in the U.K. Gary will greet you in arrivals and transport you to our home in his luxury car and should you book a return he will pick you up from our home and transport you to Heathrow Airport. The cost of this service is a very reasonable £140 each way. Please be aware that this charge is for the car and not per person. The car takes a maximum of four people. For larger groups we can arrange an additional car. Please contact us for prices from other airports or cities within the U.K.

Please pay the taxi driver directly.
