About seven miles south of Keswick, Seatoller is the last village in Borrowdale before the valley road starts its steep and winding climb to Honister Pass. Surrounded by some of the valley’s most beautiful broad-leaved woodland as well as walled fields where Herdwick sheep graze, the settlement consists largely of a few old quarrymen’s cottages and a farmhouse. It’s undoubtedly a welcome sight for walkers who have just crossed the fells on day two of Wainwright’s Coast to Coast long-distance path.

Seatoller is served all year round by the 78 bus service from Keswick and, in summer, by the 77/77A, a circular route that is surely one of the finest bus journeys in the whole of England.
