Directions to Hill Crest
From the Harbour By Car
Leave the harbour and approach a large roundabout. Take the third exit - effectively
turning right - (a) and proceed along the sea front towards St Sampsons. On the way, will pass the following:- The Fresh Food
Store (Co-op) on the left - a set of traffic lights - continue straight - a small roundabout with the Red Lion on the left
- continue straight – a small wooded area on the left with a bus stop and a bus shelter opposite – take the left
fork here and note the speed limit of 25 mph - proceed until you reach traffic lights - go straight and you will see a kitchen
store on the left. Immediately after this is Hill Crest Cottage with parking in the driveway - right, left or straight on.
From the Airport By Car
Leave the airport and take a left turn, following the curves of the road and passing The Deerhound (excellent
bar meals) on your right. You will come to a set of traffic lights. Go straight ahead past Le Chene Hotel on your right. Pass
the Forest Road Garage on your left. Keep straight on until you reach another set of traffic lights. Turn left and follow
the curves again until you reach another set of traffic lights. Go straight on and you will come to a small roundabout. Go
straight ahead - this is Ville au Roi. Keep on until another set of traffic lights and turn right. You will come to a strange
junction with a yellow grid - in Guernsey this means - Filter in Turn - literally one car from each direction has priority.
Turn left. You will come to another filter - turn right and continue straight, through three sets of traffic lights (plus
a final pedestrian traffic light) until you come to a large roundabout on the sea front. Turn left towards St Sampsons and
follow the directions from (a) above.
From the Harbour
Walk towards the large roundabout keeping to the footpath
on the left. Cross the pedestrian crossing and turn left. Shortly, you will see two bus stops. You need the first one. You
need any bus that is going to the "Halfway" where you alight. The buses are frequent until dark when they cease
**When you get out at the Halfway,
turn left away from the sea. After about four hundred metres, you will come to traffic lights. **** Continue
straight and you will see the kitchen store on the left. Hill Crest is the very next cottage on the left.
