The Newlands Valley
The late A. Wainright said of Newlands in his 1984 book "Fellwalking with Wainright":
" More than 50 years have gone by since I first set eyes on Newlands and in all that time the valley seems not to have changed in any way. Today it is the same sweet Arcadia I knew so long ago, lovely and secluded, an idyllic place of flowers and trees, of emerald pastures and sequestered farmsteads, all cosily sheltered by rough mountains, and having as its greatest blessing an undisturbed peace....."

There is little that one can add to this! Here is a paradise for the country lover and walker, with magnificent fell routes such as the Newlands Round or the Coledale Horseshoe being on the doorstep of Uzzicar Farm.
Yet the market town of Keswick with its shops, pubs, restaurants, museums galleries and other attractions is just a short drive away - or walk across to Hawes End beside Derwent Water and take the local launch service across the lake to Keswick. Alternatively Buttermere and Crummock Water are just a few miles in the opposite direction.
