Leave the M6 at Junction 40 (Penrith) taking the A66 West towards Keswick.
At the roundabout take the second exit, A592 to Ullswater. Follow this road for about 5 miles to the T junction at the lake. Turn right and follow the lakeside until you reach the Brackenrigg Hotel on the right. Turn right immediately after the hotel (signposted Bennett Head/Penruddock). Continue up the hill bearing left at every opportunity until you reach the hamlet of Bennett Head. Continue straight (you will see a campsite sign pointing in this direction). Follow this road until you reach the entrances to The Quiet Site on your right and Cove Park on the left. Continue for a further 50m and at the triangle turn right, up a hill along a very minor road. Continue past a barn on your left and fork immediately right to Mellfell House. After 50m turn first right to a five-bar gate. Proceed through the gate, bear right and you will come to the parking area. (Please close the gate behind you.) Little Mellfell Cottage is Number 4. Postcode CA11 0LS
