By Car

Please be aware, your Sat Nav may try to take you down Chapel Butt Lane and Brownber Lane. These routes are impassable and you risk damage to your vehicle if you attempt to go down these roads. To make things easier we have put a link to the map, here.

Directions from M6, J38 (Tebay)

Follow the A685 east towards Kirkby Stephen and Brough. After about 5 miles, immediately after the white sign for Newbiggin-on-Lune, take the left turning, signposted to Kelleth and Gt. Asby. Follow signs for Gt. Asby, taking you into High Lane and then follow directions from High Lane given below.

Directions from the A1

Take the A66 west from Scotch Corner to Brough. Turn south at Brough on the A685. Follow the A685 through to Kirkby Stephen. About 5 miles past Kirkby Stephen you will approach the village of Newbiggin-on-Lune on your left.  Continue onward a few hundred yards on the A685 and then take a turning on the right, signposted to Kelleth and Gt. Asby. Your GPS system may attempt to persuade you to turn earlier into Chapel Butt Lane – say “shush you!” Follow signs for Gt. Asby taking you into High Lane. Then follow directions from High Lane given below.

Directions from High Lane

The drive leading to Brownber Hall is the third drive on the right, about 60 yards up High Lane. The entrance gates are set back a little and have a big Brownber Hall sign. Your GPS system may try to take you further up High Lane to an unpassable Brownber Lane – if you cross the cattle grid you are doomed! Turn into the main gate, pass the lodge and follow the road round. You will pass a second house on the left and will see Brownber Hall raised high on the left of the lane. The entrance to Brownber Hall is just past the front of the building and requires a sharp turn back on yourself to the left.
