A Day in Borrowdale

Love Keswick and ready to explore a little further afield? The Borrowdale Valley is just on the doorstep and one of the most beautiful in the Lake District.

Morning - Go in search of Millican Dalton's Cave. This half-day circular walk from Rosthwaite takes you around the base of Castle Crag, to the cave and back alongside the river. For route details click here.
Afternoon - Visit Ashness bridge, one of the most photographed bridges in the Lake District. A short stroll up the hill is Surprise View, a magnificent panorama overlooking Derwentwater. Nearby don't miss a visit to the Bowder Stone, the most famous boulder in Lakeland.
