From the M6, we highly recommend taking junction 38, signposted Appleby and Orton. You follow through the delightful village of Orton and for about 10 miles, keep following signs to Appleby. Once you have arrived in the picturesque village of Appleby, drive through the village, go over the bridge and the River Eden and turn left, following signs to the A66 and Penrith. You then travel along the A66 towards Penrith and Kirkby Thore is well signposted. You turn right into the village, by the Bridge Café and follow this for about ½ mile until you see a Post Office on your left hand side and Cross Street also on your left. Turn into Cross Street and Dunkeld Cottage is immediately on your left hand side.
