From the direction of Harlow, Sawbridgeworth, Epping:
Take the A414 towards Hertford until the first roundabout – this one has 5 exits, going to Hoddesdon, Ware, Hertford and the A10 and Stanstead Abbotts. Take the Hoddesdon exit (first exit) and drive straight on. You will pass a small parade of shops on the right-hand side, amongst which is Luigi’s Hand Car Wash. A little past this is a cemetery on the right and the road widens a little just past the cemetery. The first road on the right where the road widens is Briscoe Road. Turn right into Briscoe and drive to the top. College Road forms a T-junction with Briscoe. Turn left onto College Road. The house is the 7th on the left.
From A10 north of Hoddesdon:
Make your way south on the A10 and exit towards Harlow & Stanstead Abbots to the large roundabout with 5 exits, going to Harlow, Hoddesdon, Hertford and the A10 and Stanstead Abbotts then take the Hoddesdon exit. Follow the directions as above.
From A10 south of Hoddesdon:
Make your way north on the A10. Take the Hoddesdon exit off the A10 and follow the dual carriageway down to the roundabout (the Sun pub is on your left) and take the first exit towards North Hoddesdon. At the next roundabout (there is a white van showroom on this roundabout and you will see a BP garage diagonally opposite alongside a small parade of shops), your satnav will probably ask you to turn left, but go straight on instead. You will then almost immediately come upon a mini-roundabout – go straight on here. This is Ware Road. Carry on and take the 2nd turning on left – this is Briscoe Road. Drive up to the end of Briscoe where College Road forms a T-junction with it. Turn left onto College Road – my house is 7th on the left.
From the direction of Hertford:
Make your way to the Mercedes Benz showroom roundabout and take the exit to Hertford Heath. This is Hertford Road. Follow this road all the way, past the College Arms pub (on the right), past Haileybury School (on the left), under the bridge and past Merck Sharpe Dohme, which is on the right. Just past MSD, there is a turning on the left – turn sharp left, so you almost go back on yourself. This is College Road. Drive along College Road, across the crossroad with Westhill Road, and my house is the first house on the right.
Take Junction 25 (A10 exit) off the motorway and follow the directions as for ‘A10 south of Hoddesdon’.
