The road starts on the A590 at the western end of the Lindale bypass and follows the old route of that road southwards. There is a gap in the central reservation to allow eastbound traffic from the A-road to get to/from the B5271 but as the two roads run parallel for a short distance the two westbound slip roads are some distance apart, at either end of the parallel section. We now continue south to enter Lindale. There's a TOTSO right at the original northern end of the B5271 whilst the ex-A590 ahead is now unclassified into the village centre.
The B5271 heads south out of the village and confusingly leaves the Lake District National Park as it starts to become rural again. The wide valley of the River Winster is to the left but we follow a winding route along the valley side. The majority of the road is wooded.
Presently we reach the outskirts of Grange-over-Sands and descend into town along Windermere Road. It's not long before journey's end at a mini-roundabout on the B5277 opposite the lake in the Ornamental Gardens.
