Leave the M6 at Junction 40 (Penrith). Take the first exit on the Motorway roundabout which is signed towards Keswick (A66). Go straight over at the next roundabout and keep on following the A66 for 17 miles. You will then come to a big roundabout. Keswick is signed left but instead of going to Keswick, take the third exit (right) signed to Carlisle. Follow this road for 5.5 miles. You will then go down a hill, and pass by a church on your right. After the church, turn right (signed Bassenthwaite). Once in Bassenthwaite Village, you'll see the village green. Keep on the road which bends to the left and keeps the village green on your right (rather than taking the road that goes through the middle of the village green). You will go past a row of terraced houses and Barn Cottage is the last house on your right before the road bends 90 degrees to the right. Roy and Chris, the owners, live at Willow Cottage, the next house, just round the corner.
The postcode for Bassenthwaite Village is CA12 4QP.
