Coming north from Bath, Cirencester and Northleach, turn right signed to Sherborne 5 and Clapton 2. Setting you milometer at 0 continue for 0.5 miles to a T-junction and bear right to Clapton. At 1.9 miles take the turning to the left signed to Clapton on the Hill. At 2.9 miles you will be outside our house.
Coming south from Warwick and Stratford-upon-Avon on the A429, you pass Bourton-on-the-Water and turn left at the sign to Clapton and Sherborne.
From London and Oxford, follow the A40 towards Cheltenham. Set your milometer to 0 at Burford and at 6.4 miles turn right to Clapton and Sherborne. Continue along this road and at 9.1 miles turn right at the sign to Clapton-on-the-Hill.
From the west (Cheltenham and Gloucester), pass Northleach on the bypass and continue for about two miles, turn left at sign to Sherborne 5 and Clapton 2 and then proceed as above.
Once in the village continue until you reach the village green (this is a triangle of grass with a letter box in the right hand corner). Bear right, keeping the green to your left, past a house called The Granary and another called The Shippon (on your right)
In front of you is the village church and Clapton Manor is the three storey house immediately to your left, opposite the church, facing down the hill with a yellowy-green front door. Beyond this there are two gateposts, one with a stone ball on it, and inside these is our parking area. Please park your car there.
Do not worry about the garage as we do not use it. The front door is through the wrought iron gate into the garden.
