Rowling End House is located in a superb location within the Newlands Valley, just 4 miles from Keswick within the Lake District. Set within private wood land, Rowling End House offers a peaceful tranquil retreat where you can relax and explore the many delights that the lake district has to offer. Wainwright saw Newlands greatest blessing as the undisturbed peace and freedom from mass tourism and commercialisation and today the valley continues to enjoy a relaxed way of life.

Whilst Rowling End is in a delightful secluded position, it is at the heart of the Northern Lakes and within easy distance of Borrowdale, Keswick, Derwentwater and Buttermere - whether by foot, car or bicycle. This is a perfect location for those who enjoy walking with plenty of opportunities directly from the door.
