ADDRESS: Croftlands Cottages, Croftlands, Thornthwaite, Keswick, Cumbria, CA12 5SA

Arriving by car

For Sat Nav users the post code is CA12 5SA

This post code applies to a large area of Thornthwaite and once in the village a Sat Nav may not accurately direct you to the cottages. At this point please follow our directions.

  • Exit M6 at junction 40 (Penrith)
  • Follow A66 west towards Keswick for approx. 17 miles
  • Continue on A66 past Keswick for approx. 2 miles until you reach Braithwaite
  • Immediately after the main Braithwaite exit take a left turn off A66, signed Thornthwaite 1 mile
  • Continue along here into Thornthwaite village
  • As you come into the village pass a turning on the left signed for Thornthwaite Gallery. The cottages are located on the left side not far after this. There is a bus stop shelter on the right just before the turning into the cottage parking area. 

The turning from the road into the car park area has a slight incline and is quite a tight turn between a hedge and a wall. There is a slate sign for Croftlands Cottages positioned behind the hedge at the entrance to the car park.
