The southern Lake District is conveniently linked to the M6 motorway. To find Lakeside, leave the M6 at Junction 36 and follow the A590 which is sign-posted Barrow-in- Furness. Approximately 18 miles after leaving the motorway you will reach the Newby Bridge roundabout. Continue through the roundabout on the A590 and turn first right over a bridge and past the Swan Hotel. Lakeside is sign-posted three and a half miles along this road on the right. The Main entrance is based at North Camp which is the second turning after South Camp.
