Exit M6 at J40 Penrith.  Follow the A66 to Keswick/Cockermouth.  Continue for 19 miles along the A66.  Go past Keswick.

On the left you will see a sign for 'Braithwaite' - DO NOT take this junction but carry on a little further.

Ignore the 2nd second junction to Braithwaite (you will see the 'Middle Ruddings' pub just set back from the road as you go past this junction).

You will drive past a white building on the right hand side of A66, with tennis courts behind it, called The Institute.   Then you will see the next junction on the left - this is the 3rd junction from Keswick - signposted to 'Thornthwaite/Gallery'.  Take this junction.

As you turn into the junction the road bends round to the right and you will see Maple Bank Guest House on the left, just set back from the road.

Go through the gateway marked by two white pillars.  There are two parking spaces at the front of the house, immediately to the left.  A gravel driveway up the left hand side of the house takes you to the car park at the rear, with a further four parking spaces for guests.  There is one car parking space per room available.
