Map & Directions

Road Directions

From Crook town centre, head along the A690, direction Durham. You will go up a long hill (Wheatbottom). At the crossroads at the top, turn left into Low Jobs Hill (signposted 'Tow Law 5'). We're about 700 yards along on the left - the last house. If you reach Church Hill you've missed it! (shows on sat-navs as Hillcrest).

Public Transport Directions

From Durham - 8 miles. Bus from Durham City to Crook market place. Walk from market place up Church Hill to Low Job's Hill, or call us and we'll pick you up.
