About Rosthwaite

The spectacular Borrowdale Valley runs from high in the Scafell Mountains to the fringe of broad Derwent Water.

Rosthwaite is a tiny hamlet used by walkers and climbers, as a base for exploring the beautiful surrounding countryside. On the approach to the centre, the whole of Borrowdale opens up into a wide panorama of the magnificent mountains ahead, giving a dramatic taste of the beauty yet to come. Castle Crag, owned by the National Trust, dominates a narrow pass where the mountains rise up from the valley floor to a startling 900ft summit. There are wonderful walks to the Honister Pass ant Keswick. Known as the Queen of the Lakes, Keswick lies surrounded by the mountains of Skiddaw, Blencathra and High Seat.

Small as Rosthwaite may be, it has magic and serenity coupled with some of the most unforgettable sights in the Lake District National Park.
