Your only other option is to assess if a new access to the field is viable from an existing public access (e.g. a new gateway off a road).  However, be warned this will need planning permission (which is never guaranteed) and the Councils tend to be really stringent on how much tarmac is required between the road and the field, and how you prevent any run off from the field to the road etc if you can get a new access route.

Not true, we got permission for new road access despite the fact we already had road access, we mad ea good case for safety and not wanting to cut back trees of an ancient woodland for HGV/farm vehicle entry and the HA agreed and the LPA granted permission as long as we stopped up the old access.

Doesn't apply to everyone, but far from a definite no
