Getting around
Always worth stopping off at Cartmel!

How to get there

Woodland Cottage is directly after this on the right-hand side. The gate to the owners’ house is about 200 yards further, on the left-hand side.

Turn left off the A590 by Staveley, just after the end of the dual carriageway, signed ‘Cartmel 4’. Carry on for about 2½ miles before turning right for Wood Broughton, the 3rd right hand turning...
