Travel notes:
Online maps and sat navs often suggest you go via Ambleside to get to Eskdale. Be warned this route includes some of the steepest mountain passes in the Lake District, single-track roads with 30% gradients and hairpin bends. Our directions are much easier and more direct - we strongly advise you use these.

From the south – Exit M6 at J36 and follow the A590 west, signposted to the West Lakes. At Greenodd turn right onto A5092. Join the A595 at Grizebeck and continue on this road to Holmrook. From Holmrook turn east on to the B5344 and follow signs for Eskdale Green. Journey time from J36 is approximately 1 hour 15.

Two stage sat nav from the south to avoid Ambleside

  1. Navigate to Greenodd (LA12 7RD)
  2. From Greenodd drive to Eskdale Green (CA19 ITE)

From the north – Exit M6 at J44 and take the A689 to join the A595, the Cumbrian coast road to Holmrook. From Holmrook head east on to the B5344 and follow signs for Eskdale Green. Journey time from J44 is approximately 1 hour 25.
