Rosthwaite

Rosthwaite


Surrounded by rough mountains of ancient volcanic origin, Rosthwaite is a small village straddling both The Cumbria Way and Wainwright’s Coast to Coast Walk. It lies in a widening of the valley near the junction of the Langstrath and Seathwaite branches of Borrowdale, the meeting point of two northwards flowing glaciers during the last ice. Formerly a farming community, Rosthwaite has diversified into tourism, and it is the village Prince Charles chooses to visit from time to time for quiet relaxation away from the affairs of state
