How to get there!     --     the hard way


"Beside Tarn Hows - accessed by a walking track"  

{JRS nfo} "I never found the cottage in June 2007. I found these signs and tried this path but eventually turned back"

{Jan Tarrant writes}"Rose Castle cottage is situated on the high land to the east of Tarn Hows."

{Ronald and Sandra Kok write} "This year we looked for Rose Castle Cottage and found it. It is situated on the path which you gave directions for. We followed the whole path and climbed over the footpath fence and followed the foot track. And there it was standing on top of the hill. What a surprise to see a car at the back of the house and a two wheeltrack "highway" which comes from the disabled parking at the road side."

I tried it myself again on June 6, 2017 but had to give up after 35 minutes of difficult paths in the wet. I returned to my car ...and tried another route (below)

How to get there!     --     the easy way
You can park at the National Trust Car Park for Tarn Hows.  Walk along the road to the east until you see some disabled parking places (which you could use of you have a Blue Badge). The track goes to a 5 bar gate which is labelled to Rose Castle Cottage. The walk is not very steep.
