How to get there
Click map icons for more information
ARRIVING BY CAR: Take the M6 to junction 36 then turn onto the A590 to Barrow-in-Furness. Stay on this road for about 15 miles, through Newby Bridge and about 4/5 miles on from there, turn right to Greenodd, Workington and Coniston on the A5092. Follow this road for about 5/6 miles up a very steep hill through Gawthwaite and down the other side.
Continue down the hill, all the way to the bottom, and then take a right turning for Woodland (this will be the second turning for woodland that you will see). Before you have straightened your wheel, turn immediately right again and go straight for about half a mile. At the top of the lane you will come up to some farm buildings, as the road turns to the right, Keepers Cottage is on the right and The Cart House is straight ahead.
We are 30/35 mins from the motorway junction. Any problems please ring 01229 889888.
ARRIVING BY AIR: From Liverpool Airport it is about 2 hours drive up the M6 or from Manchester Airport about 1 1/2 hours.
ARRIVING BY TRAIN: The nearest station is Ulverston, but to get there you have to change trains at Preston. The best mainline station to get to is Oxenholme, just outside Kendal and the train service is very good either from Manchester or London Euston.

The Cart House was a quirky conversion, charming and perfectly situated for touring the area. It was clean, well equipped and in a beautiful, tranquil location on a working farm that you feel compelled to go exploring on.
The village of Broughton nearby was great for a meal and had a nice butchers/deli.
We would definately return.
