Howscales is located 1.5 miles outside the village of Kirkoswald. There are no public transport options from Kirkoswald to Howscales.
The nearest train station is at Lazonby, which is approx. 2.5 miles away, but it has a very limited service. The main train station is at Penrith, which is approx. 10 miles away.
There is a very limited Fellrunner bus service that serves Kirkoswald and surrounding villages.
It is therefore strongly reccomended that guests do have a car.
