Duddon Holiday Cottages
Holiday cottages in Duddon - isolated in one of the valleys of the Lake District, to the west - offer up some of the most idyllic scenery in the whole of the UK.
The heritage of the Duddon Valley is rich and, even today, one of its legends is discussed. The local pub, The Headless Woman, remembers resident Grace Trigg who lived back in the 1600s. A servant at nearby Hockenhull Hall, she died at the hands of Oliver Cromwell’s forces but is said to continue haunting the area. If you’ve got a true crime fan in the family, this will be a perfect stop. Local farmers have reported seeing her stroll through fields and the inn’s owners insist they continue to feel her presence today.
Duddon is largely rural and the landscape includes thickets of forest, bustling riverbanks and fields of sheep – with plenty of Herdwicks grazing on the fells. It’s a popular spot with walkers, climbers and canoeists, as well as wildlife enthusiasts who are still able to catch a glimpse of red squirrels and peregrine falcons in the valley.
