From the South on the A1:
If using the M1, carry on when it joins the A1. Turn off at Scotch Corner onto the A66. Carry on for about 10 miles then turn right onto the B6277, signposted to Barnard Castle. Stay on this road past Barnard Castle, through Lartington to Cotherstone (4 miles from BC).

From the North M6:
Turn off at J40 onto the A66.

From the South:
Exit at J38 and follow signs to Brough (A685). About 4.5 miles after Kirkby Stephen, turn right onto the A66 East.
Where the A66 splits, bear left onto the A67. Immediately after the junction, there is a small turn-off to the left, signposted to Cotherstone. This is a very small, isolated moor road, which is great to drive, but should probably be avoided in bad weather. If you take it, turn left when you reach Cotherstone, Red Lion Cottage is then about 300 metres on the left. If you prefer wider, straighter roads, carry on on the A67 to Barnard Castle. When you reach the T-junction below the Castle, turn left on to the B6277. Carry on for 4 miles through Lartington to Cotherstone.

From the North on the A1:
Travelling south on the A1(M), leave the motorway at junction 61 taking signs for Bishop Auckland on the A688. Continue on the A688 for 25 miles to Barnard Castle. At Barnard Castle pass through the town centre taking signs following the A67 down to the bridge over the River Tees. Over the bridge, turn right onto the B6277. Carry on for 4 miles through Lartington to Cotherstone.
