Our Situation

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.


How to get to us ...

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.
