Fortunately for us, the vast majority of visitors don't venture further north than Keswick. The Dash is perhaps only a 15 minute drive north of Keswick and yet the area and roads are perfectly quiet and still. Keswick is a small lakeland town, with a wonderful setting between Derwentwater, Blencathra, Skiddaw and Bassenthwaite Lake (seen in this picture).

About 5 and 1/2 miles up that road turn right signposted Orthwaite, approx 1 and 1/2 mile along that road you will come to a wooden bridleway sign which says "Dashfalls via Skiddaw House" go through the silver gate and this road will lead you directly to the house. An unspoilt traditional hill farm, completely secluded, on the northern side of Skiddaw at the foot of the famous Whitewater Dash waterfall.
