How to Find Us

By Road - The North (Carlisle)
(Approx 55 miles)

From Carlisle, head west on the A595, sign-posted “Workington”. Follow the A595 past Whitehaven, Egremont and Gosforth. After Holmrook, you pass a Texaco filling station on the right. We are just over two miles beyond this. Do not turn into Ravenglass, but follow the A595 bearing left. We are just beyond the Muncaster Castle car park on the left.
Allow 70 - 80 minutes from Carlisle. 

By Road - The South (J36, M6)
(Approx 53 miles)

Leave the M6 at junction 36 and follow the A590 signs to Barrow. Continue along the A590 to Newby Bridge then turn off onto the A5092 (sign-posted “Workington and Whitehaven”). Then follow the main road onto the A595 past Broughton in Furness, continue on and turn right at the T-Junction. Continue on the A595 through Bootle and Waberthwaite. The guest house is about ¼ mile beyond the coach entrance to Muncaster Castle on the right hand side of the road.
Allow 70 - 80 minutes from the M6.

By Road - The East
(Approx 40 miles)

From Keswick come via Cockermouth and Egremont onto the A595 and follow the route from the North.
From Ambleside the normal route is via Coniston onto the A595 and then follow the route from the South. If you are feeling adventurous then coming via Hardknott & Wrynose Pass is a scenic option, but it is a single track road and very tortuous.
