How To Get Here

By Car

If you are arriving by car from the M6 leave at the Penrith junction (40), take the A66 West for 16 miles, take the first Keswick exit on the left (signed Keswick Windermere). As you come off the slip road you will see a row of about 20 semi detached houses on your right. The car park entrance is immediately after these houses and is well signed.

If you are taking the scenic route up through Windermere, Ambleside and Grasmere just follow the road until you are approaching Keswick, just before the sharp bend to the left into town you will see a sign to Penrith on the right. Take this turn and we are about 200 metres on the left, once again it is well signed.

Public Transport

If you are coming by bus or by train and then bus from the Penrith direction, we are ideally placed since both bus stops are by our garden. Please do not hesitate to ring or email for information about buses. From the South the 555 stops just around the corner-Chestnut Hill bus stop.
