Approaching from Selby direction (Southbound)

Follow the A1 South. On reaching exit at Selby Fork Travel Lodge take A63 towards Selby, passing Lumby garden centre on right. At roundabout take last exit right onto A162 towards Brotherton.

As you head towards Burton Salmon, 2 miles from the roundabout, the range is not far away. There is a large pond at the front of the village (as drawn on the map), and the entrance to the range is approximately 100m further on down the road. The entrance isn't signposted, but there is a gap in the hedgerow and a steep descending entrance; that's the entrance to our grounds.

If you reach a large set of set back gates on your left hand side with room to pull off and turn around, you've gone too far. Pull off the road infront of the gates and turn right back onto the road, keeping an eye out for the entrance on your left (If you get back to the pond then you've missed it again!).

Approaching from Brotherton/Ferrybridge direction (Northbound)

Follow A1 North passing junction 33 of the M62, carry on towards Ferrybridge. On seeing cooling towers on left prepare to take A162 South Milford/ Sherburn in Elmet turn off. On taking exit follow road for approx 2 miles, passing the Fox public house.

As you head up the road towards Burton Salmon, keep an eye out for the large gates on your right hand side. As you pass the gates prepare to indicate and slow down as the entrance will be on your left. If you reach the pond at Burton Salmon then you've missed the entrance, turn around in the village and head back down the road again, looking for the entrance on your right hand side (see Southbound instructions).
