Welcome to Borrowdale in the magnificent Lake District
Chapel Field is set in the heart of the Borrowdale Valley, where the Cumbria Way crosses the Coast-to-Coast walk, with wonderful views of the surrounding fells. With two lovely bedrooms, our cottage offers very comfortable and relaxing self-catering accommodation for up to three people and is ideally situated for exploring this beautiful area.
Whether you are content with low-level riverside strolls or are a more adventurous climber of fells there is an ample choice of walks just from the doorstep. Derwentwater is 3 miles away and the town of Keswick with all its visitor attractions is a mere 6½ miles. There is a shop, two pubs and restaurants within easy walking distance. Without needing to use a car or bus (but if you need it, the stop is just outside our gate) there is a myriad of beautiful walks in all directions, from the beautiful Langstrath Valley up to the most strenuous hike you could wish for, including around 35 Wainwright summits. Nearby fells include Glaramara, Great Gable and High Spy. Scafell Pike and the Langdale Pikes are possibilities for the stronger walker and a short drive over the Honister Pass will take you to Buttermere and fells such as Wainwright's favourites of Haystacks and Pillar. As the crow flies there are 56 Wainwright summits within 5 miles, including Scafel Pike.
Wildlife lovers will be thrilled to know we regularly see red squirrels, rabbits and a fascinating variety of birds in the garden. Other mammals also seen recently include badgers, deer and otters down by the nearby River Derwent.
