Take the third exit signed for the A591 (Carlisle/Underscar)
Take the second right turning on to a narrow lane for Applethwaite
You will reach a sharp right hand bend with a sign warning for "Squirrels"
Continue past this sign and past Raven Lane on the left
After Raven Lane the road splits, take the left hand fork uphill past a row of cottages directly on the left of the lane
The lane is partially grassed in places
Scar Cottage is the larger cottage on the left with parking spaces for two cars (although tight for large cars)
We kindly ask that guests do not use the drive for neighbouring property Beckside as a turning circle. Instead, please drive up to the top of the lane, turn right and come back down the road on the other side of the beck.
