Location of The Barn

Directions

From the South
Leave the M6 motorway at junction 36 for Kendal/Lakes
Follow signs to Barrow (A590)
Turn right to Workington (A5092) 3 miles beyond Newby Bridge and follow this road to Broughton-in-Furness (10 miles)
Turn right to Ulpha before the River Duddon (3/4 mile beyond Broughton)
After 4 miles turn left in Ulpha village to the steep hill signed Eskdale
Follow the fell road to the King George IV pub (6 miles)
Keep going past the King George IV, go through Eskdale village and past the Bower House Inn
Once past the Bower House, turn left (rather than going up the big hill)
Carry on along this road and The Barn is on your right before you go down the hill
There is parking in the yard for three or four cars

Please note: if you have satellite navigation, the recommended route often appears to be over Wrynose and Hardknott passes which can be very lovely but are incredibly steep (England's steepest road with gradients of up to one in three), windy and narrow. Following this route is shorter in distance but certainly not quicker than the directions shown above.

The postcode for The Barn is: CA19 1TD

From the North
Leave the M6 at Carlisle (junction 44) and follow the A595 (signed Barrow)
