    How to get there
    Railway: Ulverston: 6.2 mi
    ARRIVING BY CAR: Take the M6 to junction 36 then turn onto the A590 to Barrow-in-Furness. Stay on this road for about 15 miles, through Newby Bridge and about 4/5 miles on from there, turn right to Greenodd, Workington and Coniston on the A5092. Follow this road for about 5/6 miles up a very steep hill through Gawthwaite and down the other side.

    Continue down the hill, all the way to the bottom, and then take a right turning for Woodland (this will be the second turning for woodland that you will see). Before you have straightened your wheel, turn immediately right again and go straight for about half a mile. At the top of the lane you will come up to some farm buildings, as the road turns to the right, Keepers Cottage is on the right and The Cart House is straight ahead.

    We are 30/35 m...

As a family of 24 we rented Old Beckstones as well as Becktones Cottage and The Cart House. Although all are within walking distance The Cart House was a bit trickier to get to as the walk is through a wood and across fields with no lighting and little guidance. Apart from this renting out the three cottages was ideal... more
