FREE Parking facilities are available for cars and coaches.  If you plan to arrive by coach or minibus, please notify Farfield Mill in advance to arrange set-aside parking.

Please do not use your SAT NAV when trying to locate us, due to the rural postcode you will be sent down a very narrow road on the wrong side of the river. Once in Sedbergh follow the brown signs.
