Climbing up the fellside behind us to Jenkins Crag, our self contained private piece of Lakeland provides perfect meandering routes with big lake views.
Winding upwards through native woodland – carpeted with wildflowers throughout Spring – to emerge onto fern covered fellside, near old barns where Barn Owls roost. You don’t have to leave our grounds to savour the real Lake District.
We’re working to bring Red Squirrels back to the haven of our woods, a biodiverse micro climate filled with a huge variety of birds and exotic looking moths, as well as deer who nonchalantly emerge to stroll past the hot-tub en route to the easy grazing of our gardens, (in the hope the gardeners have left veg garden gates open). Birds of prey can hunt the traditional old hay meadows in peace. The streams that feed through our gardens run through these, dividing our woodland from that of the National Trust.
It’s a haven of peacefulness for human guests too.
