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 the King George IV pub (6 miles).
  • Turn right.
  • Hollin Head is second on the left.

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 Hollin Head is: CA19 1TF

Hollin Head is one of the Lake District cottages let by Sally Fielding. Sally has cottages across the Lake District but as she grew up in Eskdale she has many in this beautiful valley and the neighbouring valley of Wasdale. This area of the Lake District is quieter than some of the others and this allows you to experience the true peace and tranquillity of this most wonderful part of the country.
Holiday cottages in the Lake District give great flexibility and a home away from home. You can see all of Sally’s cottages in Eskdale and a guide to the area by following the link.
There are plenty of great local pubs in the Western Lake District with lots of local produce on offer, there are also lots of farm shops which are great when you are self catering. Lake District fells are a great place for dogs and we have many pet friendly cottages.
