The deep, winding valley of Borrowdale, with its level green meadows and steep slopes clad in oak woodland is set among rugged ‘fells’ in the wild heart of the Lake District, and deservedly a magnet for walkers. Upper Borrowdale forms a single parish, but contains a number of separate hamlets: Rosthwaite, Stonethwaite, Longthwaite and Seatoller, each of which has a couple of farms and some accommodation. Here the Coast-to-Coast route is crossed by the Cumbrian Way.
