I suppose it all depends where you've came from, but this spot could understandably be described a being rather out of the way and difficult to get to. Those who are prepared to go 'out of their way' will be pleased they did, for this is a peaceful area of the Lake District with fells of modest height and beautiful countryside.

The parking spaces are found at the highest point on the road between Duddon Valley and Broughton Mills.
