Rose Castle is just 7 miles west of the M6 Motorway (Junction 42).
Accessible from Penrith Rail Station (17 miles) or Carlisle Rail Station (7 miles away), both on the London Euston to Glasgow train line (3+ hours from Central London).
Airport hubs are Manchester Airport MAN (127 miles / 2 hrs) , Liverpool Airport LPL (128 miles / 2+ hrs), Edinburgh Airport EDI (112 miles / 2+ hours) and Glasgow Airport GLA (113 miles / under 2 hours) for direct international flights to most continents.
Rose Castle sits in an elevated position overlooking historic parkland within the beautiful Caldew Valley. The castle is south and east facing and its view over the valley below has remained unchanged for decades. To the south, Caldbeck Fell and the northern hills of the Lake District stand at the head of the valley.
Leave the M6 at Junction 42 (Carlisle South). From the roundabout, take Newbiggin Road signposted for Dalston. After 2.7 miles at Durdar, continue straight over the staggered crossroads for Dalston. Follow this road for approximately 5.5 miles until you cross the River Caldew. At the junction immediately after the bridge, turn left onto the B5299. Proceed up the hill and follow the road around to the left. On the apex of the next bend, bear left and, after a short distance, the pillared entrance to Rose Castle will be straight ahead.
