Oakwood head

How to get there

By road:  from the South
Take the M6 to junction 43, signed A69 to Hexham.  Follow this road for just over 6 miles, through Warwick Bridge and Corby Hill, until you come to a roundabout where the Brampton bypass and Hexham are signed to the right.  Continue straight on at this point, and after a mile you come to a T-junction.  Turn right here, and then, after 200 yards, the A6071 for Longtown and Gretna is a very sharp left turn off the main street.  Oakwood Park is on the right hand side, about half a mile along the Longtown Road, just beyond the end of the 30 mph limit, as you leave Brampton.
By road:  from the East
Travel along the A69 west of Haltwhistle and over the moor until you descend through some woodland just East of Brampton.  The turn off for the town is signed also for the A6071.  Continue for about a mile and a half, through the town centre, until you come to the signed turning to the right for the Longtown Road.  Oakwood Park is about half a mile along the Longtown Road, just beyond the end of the 30 mph limit, as you leave Brampton.
By road from Scotland (A74 or A7)
Turn off the southbound A74 at Gretna.  The junction is signed for the A6071 to Longtown.  The A6071 joins the A7 just north of Longtown.  If you have travelled down the A7 from Hawick you will also come to this point.  Turn right, over the Esk and into the main street of the town.  Continue over the first pedestrian crossing (traffic lights) in the town centre for around 200 yards until shortly before the further set of lights, where the A6071 turns left, signed to Brampton (11 miles).  As you approach Brampton there is a narrow bridge over the river Irthing, with traffic light control.  A mile beyond this is a narrow lane on the left, followed 100 yards later by the gates for the Hotel.

Other approaches by road can be seen from the map.
By train:
Although Brampton has a station, it is some 2 miles to the southeast of the town.  It is unmanned, and there are no taxi facilities there.  An alternative is to travel on the far more regular services to Carlisle.  Travellers intending to arrive by train are advised to liaise concerning appropriate transport from the station.
Carlisle 10 miles.  Newcastle 49 miles.
