White House Farm is ideally situated if you are walking the Pennine Way.
Approach from the South
If you are walking in the more usual northerly direction, when you arrive at Cowling village and cross the main A6068, White House Farm is just 15 minutes walk away.
Continue on the PW passing the hamlet of Middleton to Gill Lane. After 200 yards you reach a short row of 3 cottages on the left called Starmire and a farm on the right. The PW then bears right downhill on Shop Lane for 100 yards then takes a sharp left over the bridge towards Higher Gill Bottom, a modern bungalow. At the old gate, instead of carrying on uphill, take the footpath straight ahead parallel to Lane House Beck – it is often very boggy, and walk for half a mile through fields, passing over stiles and through gates until you see White House Farm on the horizon.
Approach from the North
Follow the PW mostly uphill from Lothersdale to Cowling Hill Lane. Cross the road and follow the PW downhill. After 1/4 mile you will pass a derelict farm at High Stubbins. Cross one more field to a stile then at another derelict farm turn right on the track and head west. Walking down a bank then cross two fields to Westfield Farm and Barn. The path crosses through the forecourt of Westfield Farm and then becomes a vehicle access track. White House Farm is 100 yards – on the left.
