From Windermere, travel south towards Newby Bridge on the A592. At the Newby Bridge Roundabout take the first exit towards Kendal. After approximately 1.5 miles turn left at the junction marked Ayside/High Newton. At the road end turn left and travel under the road bridge. Turn left and travel towards the village.
How to find Barn Close, travel into the village. After passing only a couple of houses take a left turn into a small lane marked by a no through road sign and a red post box. It is an easy turning to miss as it is slightly set back. If you have dropped down through the village and passed several houses on each side then you have gone to far and need to come back. Travel up the no through road to the end. Barn Close is a cream barn on the side of the road next to a Cherry Tree set in an island. At this Cherry Tree turn right and travel up the track between the houses. At the end of the track there is a field opening straight in front of you. Please pull into the field and park by the wall near the entrance.
