What a delight these woods are. Clear paths to follow, spent an hour or so enjoying the bluebells and the view across Crummock Water.

This is one of our favourite dog walks. It's tranquil and so beautiful. And if you're lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of one of there'd squirrels that make Lanthwaite Wood their home. It has a National Trust pay and display car park so...More
