At the mini-roundabout take the second exit - bearing right signed B5281 Hospital, Grizebeck, and Broughton. Head up Soutergate and follow B5281 for 2.5 miles. Immediately after the Broughton Beck village sign turn right and immediately left. Follow the lane past the first group of houses, through the fields and into the next group. As the road turns left in the centre of the hamlet, turn right into a no through lane. The cottage parking is 10 yards ahead.
