Parking at Seathwaite:
The roadside at Seathwaite is a really popular place to park if you plan to visit the central fells including Scafell Pike and Great Gable. Unfortunately, at busy times, this can cause access problems for people who live locally, including farmers and potentially emergency vehicles.
If you turn up and find that you can’t easily park at Seathwaite without being confident a fire engine or tractor and trailer could easily pass, please consider one of these three alternatives.
The National Trust, Cumbria Highways and the Lake District National Park authority are working together to find a long term solution for those of you who like to park at Seathwaite, but it will take time.
