WHILLANSIDE: DIRECTIONS

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.
  • Continue along this road, past the Vicarage, past the Ratty Terminus and then turn left at Brook House Inn.
  • Go to the end of the road, past the Post Office and turn right up a farm track - Whillanside is the first house you come to.
  • Parking is on the road in front of the house - if you have two cars, you should be able to park at the pub but please ask first. Please note that there is a house next door (semi-detached) which also has parking for one car.

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 Whillanside is: CA19 1TG

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.
  • Keep going right through Eskdale Village until you come to the George IV on your right.
  • At the George, turn left.
  • Continue along this road, past the Vicarage, past the Ratty Terminus and then turn left at Brook House Inn.
  • Go to the end of the road, past the Post Office and turn right up a farm track - Whillanside is the first house you come to.
  • Parking is on the road in front of the house - if you have two cars, you should be able to park at the pub but please ask first. Please note that there is a house next door which also has parking for one car.
