Haverthwaite is situated beside the river Leven. It is a terminus for the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, which is very popular with visitors. Originally built in 1869 and part of the Furness line, it connected with the steam boats on Windermere. Steam and diesel engines still connect Haverthwaite with Lakeside, a 3 mile run, during tourist season. In 1798 a gunpowder works, at Low Wood, was established close to Haverthwaite, alongside iron working. Local wood, as charcoal, and water power were utilised. At different times, the road, river and railways transported the finished products. Craft shops and other small businesses now use some of the buildings. There are a number of hotels within two miles of Haverthwaite but only one small hotel close to the village itself. Others are located in Newby Bridge or Ulverston.
