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.
For Beckstones Farmhouse, Beckstones Cottage and Old Beckstones:
As you start your descent down the hill, the road turns fairly sharply to the left and then becomes straight. Look out for a turning on the right on the straight with railings on both sides. It is just after a single road sign on the right saying 8% steep hill. (This is not a road, only a driveway and at night is hard to see) Take this turning and continue until the lane forks. Turn to the left for beckstones Farmhouse; keep to the centre and bear left for Old Beckstones; and turn to the right for Beckstones Cottage.
For Keepers Cottage and The Cart House:
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 you right and The Cart House is straight

From Liverpool Airport it is about 2 hours drive up the M6 or from Manchester Airport about one and a half hours.
The nearest station is Ulverston, but to get there you have to change trains at Preston. The best mainline station to get to is Oxenholme, just outside Kendal and the train service is very good to there either from Manchester or London Euston.
