How To Find Our Crosthwaite Cottage

Finding Greenbank

Directions from Junction 36 of the M6 which is the best junction to take whether you are travelling north or south. Use the following link for a street level map of Crosthwaite and the Lake District.

Leave the motorway at Junction 36 take to A590 (signed Kendal and the Lakes). After about 3 miles, at the first junction (signed A590, Ulverston and Barrow-in-Furness) take the A590 to your left.

After about 3 miles at the A5074 junction (signed Bowness on Windermere) cross the dual carriageway to turn right. Pass the Gilpin Inn on your left and immediately turn left into the Lyth Valley.

Drive the length of the valley...about 5 miles, until you reach what appears to be a T junction. Ignore the temptation to turn right into Crosthwaite, instead bear left following the priority (still signed Bowness).
Pass road end for Bowland Bridge continuing on the A5074 towards Bowness. Pass the Damson Dene Hotel on your right and then Lamb Howe caravan park on your left. After a further three quarters of a mile you will find us on your left.

For Greenbank Cottage use the first driveway entrance.

Travelling from other routes we are situated on the A5074 three quarters of a mile south of Winster Village. Grid Ref. 422925.
