Mardale Head Car Park

Mardale Head Car Park

Haweswater, Burn Banks, Cumbria, CA10

This remote car park at the head of Haweswater Reservoir offers access to fantastic scenic walks by day and the most amazing dark, starry skies by night. Mountains obscure the East and West horizons somewhat, however, the skies directly above are awesome! A location that is in itself an adventure to get to!


Mardale Head Car Park is a Go Stargazing Site. The location has been identified by the Go Stargazing team as a good location for stargazing based on local light pollution levels, distance from nearby towns and cities and offers a safe place to park.
