  • Leave the M6 motorway at junction 36 for Kendal/Lakes.
  • Follow signs to Barrow (A590).
  • Turn right to Workington (A5092)
  • Follow the coastal road (A595) through Bootle & Waberthwaite
  • Go past Ravenglass and after a couple of miles turn right towards Santon Bridge (just before the Esso garage on the left)
  • Make your way to Santon Bridge and at the end of the road turn left.
  • After 50 yards turn right (signed to Wasdale)
  • Go along this road for about five minutes and you will pass over a bridge.
  • Once over the bridge, immediately turn right and then right again (signed Wasdale Head).
  • Carry on along this road as it takes you to the lake and then alongside it.
  • At the T-Junction turn right, still following the lake which is on your right.
  • You will eventually go over a small hump backed bridge and a cattle grid. Carry on a little further and Bowderdale Farm is the next turning on your left - look out for a farm track with a gate (that may be shut to keep sheep in) and a small black sign saying Bowderdale Farm.



From the North

  • Leave the M6 at Carlisle (junction 44) (or Junction 40 at Penrith if coming from the South) and follow the A595 (signed Barrow).
  • A few miles after you have gone through Calder Bridge and turn off right to Gosforth (it is well signed).
  • Turn left at the mini roundabout (where there is a triangle of pubs).
  • Keep on the road (following signs for Wasdale and then Wasdale Head).
  • You will eventually come to Wastwater lake and need to keep this to your right as you travel along the length of it (still following signs for Wasdale Head).
  • You will eventually go over a small hump backed bridge and a cattle grid. Carry on a little further and Bowderdale Farm is the next turning on your left - look out for a farm track with a gate (that may be shut to keep sheep in) and a small black sign saying Bowderdale Farm.


When you arrive at the farm, you will go round a right hand bend which takes you to the back of the house – the cottage is the first door you come to (on your right by this stage). Please park by the cottage door as the rest of the yard is used by farm vehicles.
