Directions

If you intend to use Satnav, based on the postcode LA20 6DY, you will end up about 2 miles from Woodend at Crosbythwaite Farm. To prevent you from getting lost, especially for the last 2 miles, you may need the following additional directions.

If in doubt, please print or make a copy of them.

The mobile phone reception within about 5 miles of Woodend is very patchy so please don’t assume that you can easily phone if you get lost.

Most Satnavs allow an exact location to be typed in, if yours does then try:

Latitude 54.354777, Longitude -3.279537 or N54.354777, W-3.279537

From the South
  • Leave the M6 at Junction 36 and follow signs for Lakes/Windermere.
  • Take the exit off the A591 onto the A590 following the signs for Barrow. Ignore any sign on your left to Ulpha at this time as there are two Ulpha's in Cumbria and this is the wrong one!
  • 3 miles beyond Newby Bridge turn right at the Greenodd roundabout onto the A5092 signposted to Whitehaven and Workington.
  • Follow this road past Broughton-in-Furness, the High Cross Inn on your right and down a steep hill towards the traffic lights. This is where the map starts.
  • Turn right just before the traffic lights towards Ulpha and Seathwaite.
  • Follow this road to Ulpha across the river, past the immediate left turn with a 6'6" restriction, past the church on your right, past the Post Office on your left and then after about 200 metres take the next left onto Birker Fell sign-posted to Eskdale and Wasdale (with a gradient of 1 in 4!)
  • Follow this road across Birker Fell for 2 miles and on your left, (weather/daylight permitting), you will see a square field surrounded by a dry stone wall.
  • Satnav, based on the postcode, will get you to this point at Crosbythwaite Farm.
  • Go over a bridge adjacent to Crosbythwaite Farm and through a tight right and left hand bend and slightly to your left (and in the distance) you may see a single tree and a gate (again weather/daylight permitting).
  • Go over a cattle grid (with a tyre tied to the side) and continue for half a mile to a signpost on your left that points back to Ulpha (2 1/2) and onwards towards Eskdale (3).
  • Turn left onto this small road and head over a small bridge towards the gate and the single tree.
  • (NB. If you miss this turn and find yourself at a crossroads signposted to Devoke Water and Stanly Gyll or heading down a long steep hill then turn around and head back and retrace your steps.)
  • Go through the gate, (closing behind you), and Woodend Cottages are the first buildings you come to after about 3/4 mile.
  • On the right there is a parking area with a large light green shed.
The cottages are located in this area.
From the North
  • From Scotland and the North East Leave the M6 at Carlisle and follow the signs for Cockermouth on the A595 then for Whitehaven.
  • Stay on the A595 until Gosforth then turn left through the village and second right for Eskdale.
  • Stay on this road past the King George pub IV on your right and head towards Ulpha, not to Boot.
  • Go up a long steep hill onto Birker Fell.
  • Follow this road across Birker Fell for about 2 miles.
  • Continue along the fell road past a black and white signpost on your right at a crossroads, that directs you to Ulpha (3) Eskdale (3) and to Stanley Ghyl.
  • Turn right at the next signpost on your right that points towards Ulpha (2.5) and back towards Eskdale (3) and head over a small bridge towards the gate and the single tree.
  • (If you use satnav based on the postcode you will be taken past this turning and on for a further 2 miles to Crosbythwaite Farm).
  • Go through the gate, (closing behind you), and Woodend Cottages are the first buildings you come to after about 3/4 mile.
  • On the right there is a parking area with a large light green shed.
  • Woodend Barn is at the bottom of the carpark through the gate.
The cottages are located in this area.
