Directions

TRAVEL DIRECTIONS  FROM THE SOUTH

 

If you can navigate to the M6 north, you need to leave the motorway at Junction 36, signposted Kendal and the South Lakes, onto the A590.

Follow the A590 and turn right at Greenodd, onto the A5092 heading towards Broughton in Furness where you should join the A595 travelling north along the west coast.

Continue for some miles on the A595 to Holmrook, where you should eventually find signs to Wasdale Head and Santon Bridge on your right. (Holmrook is also the last place where you will be able to re-fuel the car).

The roads become much narrower at this point so watch out for sheep and large puddles that may contain deep potholes.

At Santon Bridge look for the Wasdale Head sign, (if unsure, there is an inn nearby to ask for directions), and continue for a further 7 or 8 miles. You will follow the lakeshore for some distance and eventually you will arrive at Wasdale Head Village Green (people use this area as a car park). The road continues to Wasdale Head Inn, but if you turn right, cross the green, you will find a farm track beside Lingmell House. The track is approx. half a mile long, passing a small church and will bring you right up to Burnthwaite Farm.
