By Car

If you are travelling from the south on the M6, the best exit is junction 36, taking the A590 sign posted to Kendal and Windermere.  The A590 becomes the A591, which bypasses Kendal and goes through Windermere.  The hotel is about 3 miles north of Windermere on the A591, before you get to Ambleside.  The hotel car park is through an archway immediately after you pass the hotel frontage.

For SatNav users, the postcode is LA23 1LP.

By Train

There is an hourly train service from London or Manchester to Windermere, changing at Preston.  Windermere station is about 3 miles from the hotel.  If you are travelling with your bike, it is worth booking your taxi in advance.
