How to find us

By train

Travellers from the far south can search the National Rail Enquiries website for services from London Euston to Rio changing trains en-route. Then by lake steamer from the landing stage at Rio to Beckfoot via the North Pole.

For those holidaying in the Furness region there is a heritage train service on the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway which operates in the tourist seasons. This would be the best option for those wanting to ride on a steam train.


Travel tickets for some train journeys can be purchased from the Trainline online booking website.

By road

Those arriving by motor car might be able to park in the meadow adjacent to Octopus Lagoon. It would be advisable to wear sea boots for the riverside walk downstream to the station at Beckfoot.

By boat

Alternatively if voyaging by privately hired boat from Rio, you go north across the wide open sea, until you come to our river, the Amazon. Then you'll see our boathouse and that's where we live.
