4 miles South of M6 J 39, on A6 towards Kendal, 0.5 mile S of "Best Western" hotel - very secluded large lay-by on LH side - perfect for overnight stop on way to/from Scotland. And easy for the larger bus.

Another quiet overnight spot if going up or down the M6 is the top of Shap.
Right at the top of think it is J39, if going north turn right, if south turn of left.
Go over a cattle grid & park opposite the council yard. Good views & very quiet & safe.

Thanks,
Will try either this or "Near Tebay,Cumbria" as we need a overnight stop between Holyhead and Edinburgh, during mid-October '07
Regards,
Francois

Thanks for this one - it was a great place to stopover. We had a quiet night and woke to lovely views. Great place to walk the dogs too, but please be mindful that there may be sheep around :)

If you keep going south on the A6 there is another big layby on the very tops - plenty of room and good views:)
