To reach us you will need to travel by car or motorbike (there is no public transport).

Nearest airport: Carlisle 44 miles or Liverpool 100 miles.
Nearest motorway junction: M6 J38.
Railway stations and other public transport services: Kendal (Oxenholme Lake District) 17 miles; Penrith 16 miles; Kirkby Stephen 17 miles; Appleby 15 miles.

It's safest to ignore the sat nav (which usually takes you, quite unnecessarily, a long way out of your way along narrow, steep, twisty roads) and follow our directions, below.

From the north

Drive south on the M6 motorway. At Junction 39 (Shap) STAY ON THE MOTORWAY heading south towards Kendal. You are going to leave the motorway via the back exit of the Westmorland (southbound) services before you reach the next official exit.

Go into the services, keep bearing left and take the first turning to the left signposted MOTEL. Follow this service road for a quarter of a mile and at the T junction with the unclassified public road turn left. You have 1.5 miles to go to Daw Bank.

Cross the 2 motorway carriageways. Pass the back entrance of the northbound services (on your left). You are less than a mile from us here.

Bear righthanded over the railway and down the hill; cross the river on a little metal-sided bridge, and almost at once - 50 yards - turn sharp left uphill, signposted Tebay and Kendal (tall newly painted black and white signpost). From here it's 200 yards to Daw Bank.

Go up the brow and Daw Bank is at the top, on the right, on a right handed bend. There is a layby in front where you can park to knock at our front door, or you can come into the yard – just keep turning right past the stable until you are round the back of both houses. Daw Bank Cottage is the house on the right, up some steps. The door will be open, a light on and the heating on. The keys are on the table beyond the second glass door – but we live right next door so we will come and show you round, too.

From the south

Drive north on the M6 motorway. At Junction 38 (Tebay) STAY ON THE MOTORWAY, heading north towards Shap, Penrith and Carlisle. You are going to leave the motorway via the back exit of the Westmorland (northbound) services before you reach the next official exit.

Go into the services, bear left, turn left at the shop and before the fuel station, and pass the MOTEL on your left. At the T junction with the unclassified public road, turn left. You are less than 1 mile from us here.

Note: since we made this interactive map in 2001, three of the four Fell Pony Studs have closed down or moved, leaving only the Greenholme Stud near Birk Beck. However, you'll be relieved to know that the Three Greyhounds pub at Great Asby (destination for Route 5) is still there.
