We are at the very end of the road (between Scout Camp Kilsby and a dairy farm).  Once at the end of Hewitts Road, go on to the (Jareha) farm and take the drive to the right of the purple camp Kilsby sign and when it forks at the top of the hill (approx 200m) go left towards the metal gates.   You should see the white Hewitts Homestead sign.  Please note a gate code is needed for entry, we do not have open access. The house is behind the trees and can not be seen from the road.esaelP aelP SaveSave
