Address: Haystacks Cottage, Braithwaite, CA12 5SY
From the North and South
Leave the M6 at Junction 40 (Penrith) and take the A66 westbound.
Follow the A66 for about 19 miles and ignore any turn off for Keswick.
After Keswick and passing Portinscale, take the first turn off for Braithwaite.
Continue straight through the village until you reach the Royal Oak pub.
Turn left as though you were turning into the pub’s car park.
Instead of driving into the car park, take the first right after the car park entrance, leading to two large white cottages on your left.
Haystacks is the right hand white cottage next to Foxgarth Cottage. The hanging baskets sometimes obscure the cottage’s name, so peek behind them if you’re unsure!
There is parking for one car directly in front of Haystacks. There is also plenty of free on street parking.
