Location of Helm Mint
From Windermere :
Drive down to Bowness (about 1 mile) passing the police station on your left and then the cinema on your right.
About 200 yards after the cinema, before the main road goes steeply downhill and slightly right, turn left up Helm Road, next to the Lakeland shop on the left.
From Ambleside :
Turn right off A591 onto A592. In the middle of Bowness turn left off A592 onto A5074. After about 50 yards turn right up Helm Road.
Once you are on Helm Road, continue up Helm Road passing the Hydro Hotel on your left, fork slightly right where the left fork goes steeply uphill, continue straight uphill, straight over a cross roads, straight on until the road forks (this is 0.38 miles from the main road). The left hand fork is signposted “Helm Farm Holiday Cottages”. Take this left hand fork, passing Helm Lodge on your left, and then fork right up a narrow wooded road - keep going a further ¼ mile right on to the end, through a couple of right angle bends, until you reach the car park for Helm Farm.
SATNAV users - please note - the post code is LA23 2HS. However please be careful that your SATNAV does not lead you to Annisgarth, from which you cannot access Helm Road. Please approach Helm Farm from Helm Road as described above.
