NOTE: that postcode covers the whole of Hamhaugh Island

The Bungalow is not an easy place to find and can only be approached on foot or by boat. 
There is no vehicular access.

On foot.
At Shepperton Lock, cross the lock gate at the up–river end of the lock. There is a brown painted gate in the right hand corner marked 'No unauthorised Access'. Go through this gate and follow the path through the woods and over the weir until you come to a large black metal double gate. Go through this gate and Cygnets is No. 38, the second gate on the left hand side, before the path opens out onto the green.

By boat. 
If you know there is somebody already at the bungalow, then go to the hard at Weybridge Ladies ARC, on the corner of Walton Lane/Thames Street and either phone that friend or shout "lugger, lugger" at the top of your voice and somebody will come and pick you up.

By train.
The nearest station is Shepperton. Services run from Waterloo every 30 minutes and the trip takes about 50minutes. From Shepperton is it approximately a 30 minute walk to the bungalow, via Shepperton Lock.

Services also run from Waterloo to Weybridge and there are four train per hour which take between 30 – 40 minutes. From Weybridge it is approximately a 45 minute walk but you will be on the wrong side of the river and will require a boat to finally access the bungalow (see above).

By car.
There is a small car park at Shepperton lock and another, bigger one, alongside the Thames Court pub - 100m on from the lock, on the right. From either you will have to complete your journey on foot, via the lock. Trollies are available on the Island to help ferry large amounts of kit or supplies.

There is also a car park adjacent to Weybridge Ladies ARC but again you are on the wrong side of the river and will need a boat to reach the bungalow.

By bus.
Shepperton is serviced by bus routes 400, 438, 458, 555 and 557
Weybridge is serviced by bus routes 451, 459 and 461
