Pass the turning signposted to Nether Wasdale and shortly afterwards pass another unmarked turning on the right (also leading to Nether Wasdale).

Cross over a cattle grid.

You will pass through a small farm with buidings on both sides of the road, shortly after this, prepare to turn right.

Leaving the main road, turn right down the track at the finger post for a Public Footpath marked to "Cinderbridge", which leads down to Ghyll Farm.

At the bottom of the track, go over the cattle grid and and you will see the signed entrance for Little Ground Cottage immediately on the right. Please note this track is quite steep (NB At certain times of the year, the farmer puts a gate in front of the cattle grid, so if this is there, please go through it but be sure to close it after you)

The driveway passes behind Little Ground House and parking for 2-3 cars is available at the back of the cottage, just to your left as you drive in.

The entrance of the cottage is reached by walking around the to the front of the building to the porch.

*Please note, that the track is quite steep and uneven with loose stones, so please use caution at all times, especially in vehicles with low clearance, an alternative approach is just beyond the signed entrance which is less steep.*
