Travelling by car

From the South:

Leave the M6, at J36 following the A590 (A591) towards Kendal and Windermere. Stay on the A591 all the way to Ambleside. On the outskirts of Ambleside, turn left at the first set of lights (this area is known as Waterhead). Continue for approx 1/2 mile, and turn left just after the rugby club, signposted to Langdale and Coniston A593. *Continue on the A593 for approx 2 1/2 miles to Skelwith Bridge, where the road forks at the Skelwith Bridge Hotel, turn right onto the B5343. Continue for approx 2 miles, over the cattle grid and down the hillside ignoring the first turning on your left into Elterwater and taking the second turning to the Left (at the crossroads). The Good Life Cottage Co is the first building you come to on the right hand side.

From the North:

Leave the M6 at J40 following the A66 for approx 12 1/2 miles to the St John’s in the Vale turn off onto the B5322. Follow the B53422 for approx 4 miles until you come to the A591, turn left onto the A591 and continue for 7 miles. Turn right into Grasmere on the B5287 for just over 1/2 mile. As you come into Grasmere village, take the road that runs to the right hand side of the Red Lion Hotel, turn right again onto the Red Bank road. Continue on here for approx 0.6 mile then take the right hand turn up the hill and continue for a further 0.4 miles. As you come down the hill take the sharp left hand turn, almost going back on itself. At the bottom of this road you come to a crossroads, go straight over, The Good Life Cottage Co is the first building on the right hand side.

For a less daring journey, take the A591 all the way to Ambleside and follow the road through Ambleside, turning a sharp right at Hills BP Garage onto Wansfell Road, following signs for Coniston and Langdale. Turn left at the end of here and then the next right onto the A593* (See above)
