By Car

It’s easy to find us here at Manesty:

  • Leave the M6 at Junction 40 (Penrith), and follow the A66 west for 17 miles to Keswick.
  • Leave the Keswick Bypass (A66) at the roundabout and follow the B5289 and signs for Borrowdale.
  • After 4 miles, turn right over the bridge and through Grange. Manesty is 3/4 mile beyond Grange on the left.

Sat Nav Users

  • If you are using your Sat Nav, the large area of rural postcodes means that it is likely you will be directed to the wrong place! Instead of using our postcode, please use the postcode for Grange, CA12 5UQ.
  • Once you have turned right over the double humped bridge into Grange, continue for three quarters of a mile, all the way through and out of the village. Manesty is the pink coloured houses on the left hand side once you come out of the trees.
  • We also have a Google pin – search on Google Maps for Manesty – cottages and glamping
