Map and Directions
There are two quite different routes that get you to New Park Farm Cottages – one from the A595 if you were arriving via Carlisle and the other via the A591 from Keswick and the A66.
Via the A595
Travelling either North from Cockermouth or South from Carlisle head for Bothel. Keep a look out for the Greyhound Public House and take the turn immediately opposite (away from the pub). Stay on this road, through the village of Torpenhow. After about 2.5 miles bear right then, in approximately a quarter of a mile, take the next right turn. Follow this road for a little over a quarter of a mile and the cottages are on your right.
Via the A591
From Keswick head along the A591 to Carlisle. After about 9 miles turn right (signposted Caldbeck). Follow this road for about 3 miles after which you will turn left at the top of a hill (signposted Ireby). Follow this road to the village of Ireby and once through the narrow road into the square turn left (signposted High Ireby). Follow this road up past the school and stay on this road until the next right turn – a lane with a New Park Farm sign at the entrance. Turn into this road and follow until you reach the cottages on your left.
