Welcome to the Duddon Valley

The Duddon Valley, described as "A Jewel in the Crown of Cumbria", is remote, unspoilt and perhaps the most idyllic valley of the Lake District. Situated between Coniston and Eskdale, The Duddon Valley will delight walkers, mountain bikers, climbers, nature lovers and those who enjoy the peace and beauty of the countryside.

The Duddon Valley has accommodation for all tastes, including Bed and Breakfast, Self Catering Holiday Cottages, a Campsite and Camping Barn.

The tiny villages of Ulpha and Seathwaite are the two focal points of the valley each having their own church. Seathwaite, situated near the end of the ancient Walna Scar road to Coniston, boasts the 16th century, The Newfield Inn where good home-cooked food, real ales and a warm welcome await ...all day ...every day ...all year.

Please remember that it is usually cheaper to BOOK DIRECT WITH THE OWNER.
Although some holiday cottage agencies and booking platforms offer accommodation in the Duddon Valley, you will invariably pay extra (sometimes as much as 20%) as companies such as Sykes, Welcome Cottages, Airbnb, Booking.com etc. will charge a commision and this is generally passed on to the guest.
A word of advice, if you find a accommodation that takes your interest on a booking platform website, why not Google the name of the cottage along with the village to see if the owner has their own website?

The Duddon Valley's campsite is at Turner Hall near the Walna Scar Road whilst High Wallowbarrow offer a Camping Barn, both within walking distance of Seathwaite's Newfield Inn.

This quiet, away from it all Lake District valley is ideal for visiting the Western, Southern and Central areas of Lakeland.
At the head of the valley is Cockley Beck where the two notorious passes of Wrynose and Hardknott meet, a drive not for the faint hearted! One of Cumbria's best drives is from Ulpha over Birker Fell into Eskdale, on a clear day affording spectacular views of the mountains of Scafell, Bowfell and Great Gable.

The valleys of Broughton Mills and Woodland are near by, both providing accommodation and hospitality also in quiet rural locations with easy access to the Southern and Central Lake District.

Five miles away you will find the historic market town of Broughton-in-Furness, with "Tyson's", it's high quality butchers and grocery shop, The Square Cafe, Broughton Bakery and Tea Room, The Post Office, and a variety of pubs.

At the Tourist Information Office in the square, you'll find a range of leaflets and friendly staff to help you make the most of your stay in the area!
