From M6 junction 40 follow the brown Western Lake District signs  past Keswick and Bassenthwaite Lake on the A66 towards Cockermouth. Turn  left at the Cockermouth roundabout onto the A5086. Follow the A5086 to  Egremont where it joins the A595. Turn left for Ravenglass following the  A595.

From Ambleside and Coniston, consider using the A593 passing  through Torver before arriving at Broughton. From Windermere and Bowness  take the A592 to Newby Bridge.

Various scenic routes offer spectacular journeys. From the central  lakes consider the dramatic Wrynose and Hardknott passes route to  Eskdale but be aware of the 1-in-three ascents and descents, single  track road and hairpin bends.
