For local government purposes Seatoller forms part of the civil parish of Borrowdale, the district of Allerdale, and the county of Cumbria. It is within the Workington constituency of the United Kingdom Parliament, and the North West England constituency of the European Parliament.[1]

Seatoller was the destination of a regular walkers bus in the 1960s and '70s which left Carlisle each Sunday at 07:30 giving access by public transport into the heart of the lakes.

The hamlet consists of a farmhouse, two bed and breakfasts, a tea shop and eight residential flats.
