Stay in the Duddon valley, an unspoilt jewel within the Lake District National Park, excellent for walking, fishing and touring this beautiful area.

Dating back to 1706, this completely renovated holiday cottage, the end of three adjoining cottages is situated in the Duddon valley, an unspoilt jewel within the Lake District National Park which boasts wildlife including red squirrels and buzzards. Varied walks from the cottage. The garden offers views up the valley. The owner’s land includes a section of the River Duddon, which hosts salmon and sea trout (two fishing permits provided, Environment Agency licence from PO). The Duddon Valley is a jewel in the crown of Cumbria, situated between Coniston and Eskdale, remote, unspoilt and perhaps the most idyllic corner of the Lake District. The Duddon Valley will delight walkers, mountain bikers, climbers, nature lovers and those who enjoy the peace and beauty of the countryside. The tiny villages of Ulpha and Seathwaite are two focal points of the valley. Seathwaite, situated near the end of the ancient Walna Scar road, boasts the 16th century Newfield Inn, where good home-cooked food, real ales and a warm welcome await, all day all year.

    The Cottage was warm and cosy, even on the wettest day of our holiday. Although its next to the Post Office and road, it was quiet and peaceful and we had a very restful holiday. Everything we needed was provided, except towels, which we had to pay extra for. But we did get tea, coffee, milk, wine and an Easter egg on arrival, which was very welcome . The only comment we would make is, now that fibre to the cabinet is available in the valley, a faster internet connection would be good. But this has only been available for a few weeks at the time of our stay, so maybe this is something for the near future. We have stayed in several properties in Ulpha over the years, but will defiantly go back to this one.

    Very well equipped, clean, cosy and characterful cottage in a beautiful and quiet location well away from the normal Lake District busy areas. The owners have done a great job - just about everything has been thought out and provided. They even called us early in the holiday to ensure we were satisfied. The local Post Office on the end of the cottages is great for daily necessities also additional logs and kindling.

    The perfect base from which to explore the beautiful Dudden Valley and surrounding area. the cottage was beautifully equipped, immaculately clean and very comfortable. It seemed everything had been thought of so there are places for muddy boots, a way of drying wet clothes, somewhere to keep mountain bikes and a lovely hot, deep bath if you do happen to get cold and muddy. The small post office in the village keeps all the essentials and there is a good unspoiled country pub a couple of miles away, so this is the ideal place to stay if you want a quiet retreat away from it all. We could have done a different walk or bike ride every day without getting into the car at all but it is worth a look at some of the nearby dales and lakes if you have time. Our only slight regret is that we left it until our last day to visit Broughton in Furnace, so we didn't really make the most of the amazing butcher, grocer and bakery there. But we'll definitely be back for another visit.

    very nice little cottage. Perfect for our walking weekend. I particularly liked the post office at the end of the row. Nice they still have one and daily papers! Kitchen was a little small, but that is the nature of these old cottages - it helped me get out of helping with the cooking!

    Comfortable well equipped cottage. Shower was a bit of a problem. Parking not very good as builder's were re tiling some of the roof. Scaffolding was being put up . It would have been nice to have been told that this was happening. Views from the cottage were lovely.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Apologies for the scaffolding. We should have let you know in advance, although this was difficult because the builder was uncertain as to his start date. The good news is that the work is now finished and the scaffolding has gone. As for the shower - see reply below. The electric shower is only about 2 years old and this is how it came.
