Things do around Borrowdale


Attractions: .One claim to fame for the area is that it was at the nearby Seathwaite fell that graphite was first discovered by some local Shepherds, and this lead to the development of the pencil industry in Keswick. The Cumberland Pencil museum is there to record this and many other interesting facts. To the north-west lies the Whinlatter Forest Park, with a range of attractions including forest trails, adventure playgrounds, and an excellent cafe and visitor centre. Keswick also provides an excellent range of places to eat as well as further attractions and shops.


Fells: The Borrrowdale valley also provides some excellent walks. The miles of footpaths on the fells and lakeshore make it a great place for walkers.
