Setting forth for the Lake District to seek out some scenic views? Settle in to Seatoller Farm and you can start on the scenery-seeing without so much as moving from the site. The views from this family-fun Cumbria farm are stunning whichever way you turn, taking in vistas of the Borrowdale valley and the River Derwent, which runs past the site.
A nifty central location in the Lake District National Park means this site is well placed for lots of fab walks, whether you’re up for scrambling up Scafell Pike, ticking off lots of the Wainwright fells or just taking a more leisurely riverside ramble. Protected woodland runs along one side of the farm, so you’re likely to encounter wildlife even just pottering around on site – bats, buzzards, woodpeckers and owls are among the frequent visitors.
Facilities on site have been kept low key to preserve the relaxed rural vibe – separate gents’ and ladies toilets are close to the pitches, as are washing-up facilities and drinking water taps; showers are a short walk away at the main farm building.
Campfires and barbecues aren't allowed here, to avoid stray sparks causing trouble in the woods, so if you need to warm up after a walk it’s a fine idea to wander down to the nearest pub a mile away, for drinks and dinners. More pubs, restaurants and a supermarket are a 20-minute drive away in Keswick.

Dust off those hiking boots, for Seatoller’s surrounds are stacked with walking trails to suit all comers, from those seeking a gentle stroll through woodland and across heather-strewn fells to those in search of more vertical challenges. A couple of the national park’s top climbs are within hiking distance here – Great Gable is an hour and a half away on foot, and mighty Scafell Pike a couple of hours.
Roam a little further afield for hikes on Catbells (15 minutes’ drive), around the Castlerigg stone circle (25 minutes) or on the slopes of Helvellyn (half an hour away, and a fine choice for mountain bikers too). If you’d like to have a crack at climbing in a controlled environment, try the via ferrata route at Honister Slate Mine, five minutes away, and worth a stop for an underground mine tour even if you’re not up to clinging on to crags.
All sound a little tiring? Less demanding days out include the Lake District Wildlife Park (half an hour) and the sculpture trail at Rydal Hall Gardens (40 minutes). It’s worth knocking around Keswick for a bit too, visiting the eccentric Puzzling Place exhibition and Derwent Pencil Museum or taking tours and tipples at the town’s brewery.
