The Duddon Valley has accommodation for all tastes, including Bed and Breakfast, Self Catering Holiday Cottages and Camping.

The Duddon Valley is a jewel in the crown of Cumbria, situated between Coniston and Eskdale, remote, unspoilt and perhaps the most idyllic valley 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 the two focal points of the valley. At Ulpha there's a Post office/village shop whilst Seathwaite, situated near the end of the ancient Walna Scar road to Coniston, boasts the 16th century, The Newfield Inn where good home-cooked food, real ales and a warm welcome await ...all day ...every day ...all year.

The valleys of Broughton Mills and Woodland are near by; both providing accommodation and hospitality also in quiet rural locations with easy access to the Southern and Central Lake District.

Five miles away you will find the historic market town of Broughton-in-Furness, with it's high quality Tyson's butchers and grocery shop, the infamous Broughton Bakery and tea room, post office, Square Cafe and a variety of pubs.
