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 on your right. After the village shop, the road goes down a hill.
  • At the bottom of the hill, just after a bend in the road, Hazelwood is on your right.

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 Hazelwood is: CA19 1TL

There is parking for two cars at the house, any additional cars will need to park by the turn off to Irton Road station as the road in Eskdale is narrow and by a bend. It's best to reverse into the drive at Hazelwood to allow easy access when leaving the house.

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.
  • Go past the turning to the village school and Miterdale on your left, then past the turning to Foresthow Guest House & Irton Road ratty station on your right and then Hazelwood is on your left just before the road bends to the left and goes up the hill (it's about the fourth house on the left after the turn off to Foresthow Guest House).
