Braithwaite is not exactly a big place, and one can see The Coledale Inn as one enters the village, but it can be a little confusing as to which road to take to get there the first time. (Well, your Webmaster took the wrong turn!)

There are alternatives, but this is the easiest route:

  • Assuming you are approaching from the A66 Keswick to Cockermouth Road, just west of Keswick take the left branch signed to Buttermere, Braithwaite etc.
  • Keep straight ahead, do not take the Newlands road. Pass the Royal Oak on your left.
  • There is a very sharp, "blind" left turn which requires caution.
  • The road then bends right and you turn left over a little "packhorse" bridge.
  • Keep to the road, even though the rough track seems to offer a more direct route.
  • Follow the road past the Methodist Church and round to The Coledale Inn.
