Greystoke Craft Garden (formerly Greystoke Cycle Cafe Tea Garden) is situated just 300yd north of the village green on the edge of the lovely village of Greystoke. The village nestles happily on the fringes of the Lake District National Park, 5 miles west of Penrith and the Eden Valley and 5 miles north of Ullswater. We have only limited parking and ask workshops attendees to enjoy the 300yd flat walking from the free village car park, alongside the racehorses and past the Castle walls. We will send maps etc on booking confirmation. We have 2 parking spaces reserved for those unable to walk this distance, please let us know. Drop off of students or materials is fine.

Parking: free

Accessible by Public Transport: 5 miles from Penrith station
