The Borrowdale valley is a very popluar tourist destination. It is a very picturesque valley close to Derwentwater, and Keswick. The miles of footpaths on the fells and lakeshore make it a great place for walkers, and there are plenty of quality holiday properties on offer. It also has another claim to fame as it was at the nearby Seathwaite fell that graphite was first discovered by some local Shepherds, and this lead to the development of the pencil industry in Keswick. The Cumberland Pencil museum is there to record this and many other interesting facts.
