Between Derwentwater and the Borrowdale Valley the often overlooked area of Manesty offers a myriad of opportunities
Frequently found wandering the woodlands, hills and river banks of the British countryside.
Sitting in the ‘jaws’ of the Borrowdale Valley between the southern tip of Derwentwater and the village of Grange in the Lake District National Park; Cumbria, the little known area of Manesty commands an envious position in one of the most iconic areas in England.
However, its position in the less visited Northern Lakes and in a spot which requires a circuitous driving route from many of the other popular Lake District locations means that Manesty and the Borrowdale Valley as a whole receives less attention than most other areas of the Lake District. As such the somewhat isolated and overlooked location of Manesty affords itself of being a hidden gem; secret now revealed. In fact to a great extent the Borrowdale Valley is quite often just used as a short cut from Keswick out over the Honister Pass to the tourist friendly and iconic locations of Buttermere and Crummock Lake’s, the latter being the location of the 2013 Landscape Photographer of the Year winning photograph.
