The Mardale Inn is located in the picturesque Cumbrian village of Bampton, approximately 9 miles from Penrith and 4 miles from Shap. Please click here to download printable driving instructions.
Take exit 39 on the M6 and turn right onto the A6 towards Shap. Drive through Shap heading north and turn left 100 yards after the Post Office following signs to Bampton and Haweswater and Shap Abbey. Take care on this road as it is narrow. Keep going until you reach the village of Bampton Grange (about 3.5 miles) where you will go over the river and take the immediate next right. Keep along this road for another half a mile until you reach Bampton. Turn left over the bridge (by the post office) and the inn is on your right hand side.
