There are two ways of getting to Harry's Barn from the M6 motorway we find the second one more direct and easier to follow, it is also a lot more picturesque and dramatic with really good views of the Howgills.
Come off the M6 at Junction 39, signposted Shap and go into the village. Look for road signs on your left saying Crosby Ravensworth (by the chip shop) and turn right towards Crosby Ravensworth.
Carry on until you get to the village (approx 3-4miles). Do not turn off this road. You will get to a T-junction in Crosby Ravensworth. Turn left signposted Maulds Meaburn 1 mile.
Carry on past the church and go over the small bridge on the left.
You will then pass the village school and begin going uphill towards Maulds Meaburn, carry on and as you drop down into the village you will then see a road bridge on your right crossing the beck. The road over the bridge is signposted Appleby. Turn right and go over the bridge. Once across immediately turn left and go past properties on both sides of the road. You will pass a weir on your left. Harrys Barn is the small detached barn conversion on the right hand side with three very tall windows.
Take junction 38 off M6 (Tebay / Kirkby Stephen / Brough).
Turn left onto the B6280 signposted to Orton and Appleby.
Go through Old Tebay and Orton the road climbs and then crosses Orton Scar. You will then cross two cattle grids.
About a mile after the second cattle grid take the first left signposted Maulds Meaburn. The roads then descends to the village and just before the river bridge take the right hand turning (no signpost) and go past several properties on both sides of the road.
