Braithwaite Court

Cumbria, England

Newlands Valley walking and hiking route


Walk Instructions

Walk starts from Braithwaite Lodge. Walk pas the village shop until you come to a bend in the road, here you turn right over the cattle grid and up the lane to 'Braithwaite Lodge'. Follow the footpath through the farm buildings and then up to the gate in the wall. Walk up to the footpath on the lower slopes of the fell in front of you called 'Barrow'. Stop at the small figure post and turn to admire the view towards Braithwaite. To continue keep left on the footpath that takes you along the side of Barrow with a wood on your left. This eventually will drop you down to the road where you will need to walk along to the sign for 'Uzzicar Farm'. Go down the lane to the farm and follow this round the farm down towards the ‘Newlands Bed' (River). Go over the brdige and Turn right. "Witches Hand" links to the left the small fell covered in trees is called "Swinside". Soon you will be able to see the pub with the same name. When the footpath comes out on the road, go right towards Stair, then over the bridge outside the outdoor pursuit centre and up the hill. At the top turn left following the road to a very sharp bend that you don't need to follow. Its easier to go down left and cross the stream by-passing the large purple house called Rigg Beck. Up the other side from the stream go left following the narrow road downwards.

You are now at the head of the valley. Why not stop off and visit the church, almost 100 years old, and absorb the surroundings. Continue up the hill from the church and you are now in Littletown. Rising above is Catbells (541m) you can also see the disused mine at Goldscope. It was here that Beatrix Potter wrote about Mrs Tiggywinkle. As you pass through Littletown look on your right for the lane that heads to East House taking you off the road and across the fields towards Skelgill. You are now heading back down the right hand side of the valley and if you look across to your left you can see the Rowling End of Causey Pike (637m).

Continue until you arrive at Skelgill farm. Here you can turn down to Stair and back along the river to Braithwaite, having walked round the valley, or continue along the lane until you see the cattle grid and through the gate on the right of the wood. This leads down to Hawes End, where you can catch a launch (make sure to catch one going in a clockwise direction) to Nichol End, or you can walk back through the woods towards Portinscale. Instead turn left past the road that goes down to Derwent Bay Bears. The gate is just off the lane on the right. It passes through a short wooded section then across a field via a well trod path, then into Lingholm Woods, bringing you out at the entrance to the Lingholm estate.

Cross the road into Fawe Park (woods). Follow the footpath that goes up into the wood. This will take you over the top and down onto the road. Instead of going into Portinscale turn left up the hill towards a house on the right called Field Cottage. Here turn down the hill to Ullock. You are now walking back to Little Braithwaite and eventually Braithwaite Village.
