Follow the A66 westbound for roughly seven miles towards Keswick and Workington
At Troutbeck take the left turning on to the A5091 signposted Troutbeck, Dockray and Ullswater
Continue for 3.3 miles until you approach Matterdale Church on your left
Take the right turn opposite the church up a narrow lane
The Old School House is 175m along here on your right
There are 3 private parking spaces next to the cottage reserved for residents only. Park cars tight in to the fence so they don't stick out into the lane. NB. Please don't park in the large area next to the private parking spaces as this is a vehicle turning area.
