Directions

By road, from the South

Exit the M6 at junction 36. Take the A590/591 towards Kendal. Ignore Signs for Kendal Town centre and A590 Barrow.

At the end of the dual carriageway, at the bottom of a steep hill, there is a large roundabout. Take the 1st exit, signed Hawkshead and Crook (B5284).
Stay on this road for approximately 8 miles, going thorough the village of Crook, with "The Sun" public house on the right, and on past the Wild Boar Hotel, also on the right.

When you reach Windermere Golf Club, which is on the left, there is 1 mile to go.
The Linthwaite Hotel is on your left and just beyond the brow of the the hill Squirrel Bank is on the left. If you reach the T junction at the bottom of the hill you have gone too far. If you are following your Sat Nav, stay on the main road, do not take the left hand turn that most Sat Navs tell you to just after you pass by the Linthwaite Hotel. Squirrel Bank is on the main road, half way down the hill on the left. There is no access from the side road.

If coming through Windermere Village, follow the A5074 until you come to a roundabout at the bottom of the hill. Go straight on and take the first left on to the Kendal Road. Approx. 3/4 of a mile on there will be a sign for Kendal. This is the B5284. Take this left turn and Squirrel Bank is one hundred yards up on the right.

Exit the M6 at junction 40, Penrith. Follow signs for A66 Keswick for a quarter of a mile, until you come to a roundabout, then follow signs for A592 Windermere, Ullswater, Stainton.

Drive past Ullswater, on through Glenridding and Pattterdale villages, and over Kirkstone Pass, which is 1 in 4 up. From the top of the pass, follow the road down to Windermere. At the bottom you will come to a mini roundabout. Go straight across, following signs for Bowness. At the next mini roundabout turn right, then take the first left on to the Kendal Road. After approx. 3/4 of a mile there will be a sign for Kendal. This is the B5284. Take this left turn and Squirrel Bank is one hundred yards up on the right.
