Hazel Brow House sits on the side of the dale overlooking the river and as such we do have to contend with varying ground levels. The main car park, to the west of the house, has 6 steps to negotiate to access to the front door. They are fairly wide, so may be negotiable with assistance.
The East side of the house has a sloping access which can be used by 4 wheel drive vehicles, or larger cars, for picking up and dropping off. Please see the image attached. You can drive to within 3 metres of the front garden gate using but the ground is sloping and cobbled and not completely level so please take .
Alternately there is a small area where you can park a car outside the snug, at the east of the house. See attached image. Access from this area is either a short, sloping walk to the front of the house or down 3 steps to the east entrance.
