How to get here by public Transport

By Rail

West-coast mainline trains from London, Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow and Edinburgh (operated by Avanti West Coast) stop at Oxenholme station near Kendal. Buses leave from the west station entrance.

There are also local trains to and from Windermere (via Kendal), Penrith to the North and Carnforth and Lancaster to the South.

The wonderfully picturesque Carlisle to Settle railway passes about 10 miles east of Sedbergh. The stations at Dent (Cowgill) and Garsdale are plausible jumping off points for cyclists (and possibly walkers).

By Bus

Bus Services from Kendal to Sedbergh are not frequent but with careful planning are quite useable. Buses to and from other towns (Kirkby Stephen, Kirkby Lonsdale, Dent etc) are also available. (NB additional services run during the summer, so check that you are consulting the correct timetable for the time of your visit – Go to Sedbergh website for up to date timetables). Buses stop in Sedbergh. It will be necessary to follow the ‘on-foot’ instructions to get to Brigflatts from there.
