Oakbank Cottage in The Duddon Valley

Set back from the country road that winds through the lovely Duddon Valley, and yards from a rushing mountain stream and waterfall, Oakbank Cottage is spacious, gorgeously comfy and the perfect home-from-home after a great day out in the Lakes.

Start the day with a 10 minute stroll down the valley to the little Ulpha post office and stores

for a newspaper and some bread. The Duddon River with its ancient stone bridges and grassy banks inspired Wordsworth and is one of the Lake District’s less-crowded gems.
