Coppett Hill is easily accessed from the A40 between Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth. Follow the signs for Goodrich Castle with its car park and toilets. Walk back through Goodrich following the signs to Welsh Bicknor. There is no parking on Coppett Hill and access is on foot only - no powered vehicles, horses* or mountain bikes.  

Buses between Ross and Monmouth pass through Goodrich every two hours and from Ross to Coleford or Gloucester pass Kerne Bridge three times daily.
