DirectionsWe recommend using HR4 8BU (SatNav) to take you to the village of Westhope. Once in the village, continue on the lane uphill out of the village, and keep left at the first junction proceeding uphill. Towards the top, the road will fork and you need to stay to the left and continue on this lane for a short distance where the road will turn into a track. Continue over the cattle grid and you are now on the Common.
Directions CtdThe What3Words address will take you to the property now, or follow the track to the top of the hill and continue as it bears left. After a short distance there will be a grass track on the right, which takes you towards a large Oak tree with some smaller Oak trees around it. Head for the tree and once past it take a right turn once you hit another grass track. Follow this track past the bracken and scrub on your left and at the end of this there will be a track on your left heading down hill. Take this track to the bottom (staying to the right of some small trees) and Mistletoe Cottage should be in front of you.
