BIRKHOW: HOW TO FIND US

From the South

  • Leave the M6 motorway at junction 36 for Kendal/Lakes.
  • Follow signs to Barrow (A590).
  • Turn right to Workington (A5092)
  • 3 miles beyond Newby Bridge and follow this road to Broughton-in-Furness (10 miles).
  • Turn right to Ulpha before the River Duddon (3/4 mile beyond Broughton).
  • After 4 miles turn left in Ulpha village to the steep hill signed Eskdale.
  • Follow the fell road to Eskdale (6 miles).
  • Keep going past the George IV pub, over the ratty bridge and into the centre of the village.
  • You will pass St Bega's church on your left, then the village shop & Post Office on your right. After the village shop, the road goes down a hill.
  • Halfway down the hill, on the first bend, the entrance to Birkhow is on your right (after a cottage with a white porch called Rose Cottage).

Please note: if you have satellite navigation, the recommended route often appears to be over Wrynose and Hardknott passes which can be very lovely but are incredibly steep (England's steepest road with gradients of up to one in three), windy and narrow. Following this route is shorter in distance but certainly not quicker than the directions shown above.

The postcode for Birkhow Cottage is: CA19 1TL

From the North

  • Leave the M6 at Carlisle (junction 44) and follow the A595 (signed Barrow).
  • Turn off at Gosforth and follow the road (6 miles) to Eskdale.
  • The road goes up a hill and Birkhow is on your left on a bend - however, it is hard to turn into the cottage from this direction so it is best to go to the top of the hill, turn around in the carpark on your right and then come back down the hill.
  • Halfway down the hill, on the first bend, the entrance to Birkhow is on your right (after a cottage with a white porch called Rose Cottage).
