Proceed through Hampton Bishop and upon reaching Mordiford, note the Moon Inn on the left hand side on a sharp bend. Turn left at this point (effectively going straight ahead) and proceed up the hill and out of the village. After several miles, go through Haugh Woods and out onto Broadmoor Common. Continue over the common and as the road drops down on its approach to Woolhope, Avenue Cottage and the adjacent development land will be found on the left hand side as indicated by the agents for sale board. Agents note - this approach road is considerably busier than usual due to the ongoing road closure due to February 2020 storm damage, and Fownhope traffic being diverted via Woolhope.
