From North & South

  • Leave M6 at Junction 40 and take the A66 west (signed Keswick and Workington)
  • Follow the A66 for 34 miles to a roundabout (this is the fourth roundabout - the first takes you past Keswick, the second and the third take you past Cockermouth)
  • Take the first left for A595 signed for Whitehaven
  • Take the first left (almost immediately) for Bridgefoot
  • Follow this road for half a mile and turn right just before the Duke of Cumberland pub which is on your left. 
  • Continue straight up to the top of the hill
  • The road turns very sharply left - do not take this, instead you'll see a row of cottages ahead of you on your left.  These are Gaythorne Terrace.  Number 5 is the last in the terrace (it is white) 
  • PLEASE FOLLOW THESE DIRECTIONS AND DO NOT USE SAT NAV (which will take you down School Brow and through a ford)

The postcode for the cottage is CA14 1YT. Please use the directions above though as SatNav doesn't take you directly to the cottage.
