  • Turn into the second road off to the right (about quarter of a mile), after an S bend, signposted Applethwaite/Skiddaw.
  • Continue up this road, round two sharp bends, until you come into Applethwaite village.
  • On seeing the telephone box, turn left in front of it. You are now on Raven Lane.
  • Continue along this lane for around 100 yards until you see a triangle-shaped lawn on your right.
  • Owl Cottage adjoins this lawn and parking is on the driveway just outside the property, this is crazy-paved. There is a wooden owl on the front of the house too! If you reach the house with the blue window surrounds you have gone slightly too far.
