Getting Here

Beechmount is located in the heart of Near Sawrey, which itself is located 2 miles to the south-east of Hawkshead, or a mile to the west of the western side of the Windermere ferry crossing.

If coming from the south, from the M6, the simplest route is to exit at junction 36 of the M6, before taking the A590 and then the A591 towards Newby Bridge, before turning right to travel along the western side of Lake Windermere.

Alternatively, you can head for Bowness and then Bowness Nab, from where you can catch the ferry across Lake Windermere (click here for the latest info on operating hours), taking you through Far Sawrey and onto Near Sawrey. It will probably take you longer, but its a fun and scenic trip!
