From Barnard Castle, take the A67 north towards Stainton Grove for a couple of hundred metres before turning left on to the B6278/Harmire Road. Follow this road for 5 miles and continue when it merges with the B6282 for half a mile. When you reach a triangular island in the road, turn right to return to the B6278 towards Eggleston. After a further 800 metres The Moorcock in is on the right with Hill Top Huts behind.
The closest railway station is at Bishop Auckland, 19 miles away. From there you can take a bus to Barnard Castle with a connection to Middleton-in-Teesdale. The bus stop is half-a-mile from site.
