If you are travelling from the south, take the A1 north towards Berwick upon Tweed. Approximately 15 miles north of Alnwick, you will approach the Purdy Lodge service station. Drive about 200 yards north of here until you come across a sign to Chillingham Castle, on the left side of the road. Turn left here off the A1. Follow signs to Chatton. Drive through the village of Chatton. When you exit the village, turn left and follow this road for just over 1 mile, until you reach the main gates on the left.
