A Little of Lyth Valley’s History
The limestone ridges of Whitbarrow and Scout Scar on either side of the Lyth valley dominate the landscape and also the area’s history, whereby the name of the valley ‘Lyth’ means ‘sloping hillside’ in Old Norse. Whilst there was substantial Roman occupancy across the Lake District, there is no such evidence in the Lyth Valley. Signs of 7th Century monks has been found in the village of Crosthwaite, and although nothing can be seen today, a limestone cross, made form stone from Whitbarrow, marks the site of the original cross.

Getting There
Enter the Lyth Valley from Junction 36 of the M6 – the ‘gateway of the English Lakes’ – signposted for the A590 Kendal. Follow the A590 on to the A5074, towards Bowness and Windermere. From here you can peel off into the Lyth Valley villages of Crosthwaite, Underbarrow and Bowland Bridge.

From the northern Lakes head down the east side of Windermere along the A591 from Ambleside. Pass through both Windermere and Bowness to join the A5074, passing through Winster to reach Lyth.

Less than 15 minutes from Junction 36 of the M6 you find yourself in the pastoral bliss of the Lyth Valley. Cottages here offer a rural retreat within easy reach of the hustle and bustle of Windermere and beyond.

Out and About in the Lyth Valley

From our Lyth Valley self-catering cottages, to get views of this unspoilt landscape head to Scout Scar. From this craggy limestone outcrop you can see the true beauty of this valley laid out before you – a blanket of damson orchards, marked out by dry stone walls. Broad-leafed woodland cascades from the side of the ridge. On a clear day, look north to views of High Street at the top of the Kentmere Valley and south down the valley to Morecame Bay. Wainwright included Cunswick Scar as part of this rewarding walk and enjoy at picnic beneath ‘The Mushroom’ shelter at the summit of Scout Scar.

For a broader outlook of the Lyth Valley and beyond, including Langdale crags and Coniston fells, head up Whitbarrow Scar, or ‘white hill’, on the valley’s western side. A memorial to Canon G.A.K. Hervey, founder of the Lake District Naturalist Trust, can be found at the summit.

Heading down into the pastoral idyll, there’s lots to enjoy.

September is a superb time to visit as the famous Lyth Valley damson’s have ripened in the orchards and the hedgerows are heavily laden. The riches of their bounty are sold from local shops, roadside stalls and fill local restaurant menus. Damson jam makes for a great holiday souvenir if you can manage not to eat I before getting home!

For walkers and outdoor enthusiasts, the Lyth Valley puts on a very unique display in Spring, when the billowy Damson flowers are in full bloom. And as the days lengthen and warm up over the Summer months, you can easily spend entire days out when staying in our Lyth Valley cottages, sheltered by the limestone ridges of Whitbarrow and Scout Scar. It is not only the damsons that enjoy this valley’s unique micro climate, it makes for a truly relaxing holiday in the Lake District.

Enjoy the manicured landscape as well as wildlife of the superb garden and estate at the National Trust owned Sizergh Castle.

Part of the charm of this valley is its tranquillity. However, thanks to it’s location you can easily head west to the vibrant holiday towns of Windermere and Bowness, 15 minutes away, and you have the market town of Kendal only 5 miles east.

So you can easily enjoy trips out on Windermere Lakes Cruises, taking in Ambleside and the central fells, or hoping on the ferry to Beatrix Potter territory of Hawkshead and Sawrey.

Enjoy a hearty yet sophisticated meal and refreshing drink in front of an open fire at The Maison Arms at the foot of Cartmel Fell, Bowland Bridge. Just remember to book a table at this very popular pub to avoid disappoint.
