From the A66, turn into the village of Portinscale. Go through the village and out into the countryside until you see the right turn to Swinside and Buttermere. Pass the Swinside Inn pub, head down the hill and you will see a games field on your right. The road takes a 90 degree turn to the right, Newlands is immediately on your left, just before a hump backed bridge.
