If you use Sat Nav, that’s fine until you get to the roundabout at the end of the dual carriageway then it has a tendency to try and take you to Ings, trust me, this is a bad idea unless you like gates.
Easiest way to get to us is –
M6 leave at junction 36 (dedicated left turn lane so no need to stop, you’ll see what I mean, as you are entering a dual carriageway) and head left towards South Lakes/Kendal A591
At end of dual carriageway turn left at the big roundabout onto B5284 (Plumgarths farm shop on left 50 yds from entering road) towards ferry and Crook.
Follow road for approx 5 miles, through Crook. Eventually you will come to a hotel on RHS called Wild Boar, then another hotel on the right called Gilpin Lodge (white kerb stones). The road is straightish after Gilpin Lodge and as you come to the corners the road markings change to two solid white lines, slow down, then at the word ‘slow’ painted on the road turn right into a lane, signed ‘gated road’ and also cycle route signage.
NEARLY THERE I promise
Go along lane until you come to a house on left, drive around house and go through wooden gate (please ensure you latch it as there is stock in the field). We are the next drive off to the left there is a stone sign on the wooden railings. Go through the right hand gate (2 metal gates) ensuring you close them behind you. If you come to a red metal gate then you have gone too far.
Tel. 015394 42508. Mobile reception can be patchy on B5284 and on our lane.
