The Duddon Valley

The Duddon Valley offers unrivalled walking with spectacular views - on the fells, through forest and woodland and along the river bank. There are a host of footpaths to explore where you can park up and picnic or go for a paddle. If paddling of a different kind appeals to you, canoeing is just one of the outdoor pursuits on offer, along with climbing and scrambling.

Successive generations of farmers have reared the native Herdwicks which roam the fells and graze the verges. You may see buzzards soaring overhead, sight an endearing red squirrel, spot orchids growing in the meadows, and you may even catch a glimpse of a peregrine falcon. A few miles away is the historic market town of Broughton-in-Furness, with its high quality butchers-cum-grocery shop, family-run bakery/tearoom, post office, restaurant and a variety of pubs.

The tiny villages of Ulpha and Seathwaite are two focal points of the valley. At Ulpha there's a post office/village shop, whilst Seathwaite, situated near the end of the ancient Walna Scar road, boasts the 16thC Newfield Inn, where a welcome as warm as the roaring log fire await.
