| Events in Blawith | 10 Places to Stay

The tiny settlement of Blawith is at the very north of the Furness peninsula, just a mile south of Coniston Water. The River Crake drains Coniston, and Blawith stands at the western side of the Crake Valley that winds down to the sea at Greenodd. There is lovely countryside around the village, particularly to the north west where the starkly beautiful Beacon Tarn sits in Blawith Fell. The name Blawith should be pronounced Blaith, which means wolf, creatures once common in the area, though it would be more than newsworthy if even in the craggy landscape of Blawith Common you bumped into one the last wild wolf in England having been killed in 1500. Blawith is nicely out of the way, so visitors staying in the nearby Crake Valley Holiday Park or in a cottage in the area should enjoy peace and quiet. But it is also in a location that is surprisingly central to many attractions, being within five miles of Coniston Water, Grizedale Forest Park, the Aquarium of the Lakes at Lakeside, and Ulverston with its famous Laurel and Hardy Museum; and within ten miles of Wray Castle, Hardknott Roman Fort, Dalton-in-Furness with its Animal Park and the ruined Cistercian Abbey, and the Windermere Steamboat Museum.
