Head into Grange Wood, a craggy wooded knoll above the village of Grange in the Borrowdale valley, and discover a landscape which made a lasting impression on fell walker and author Alfred Wainwright. This circular walk will see you emerge from the trees to climb the summit of Castle Crag.
Take an enchanting stroll through ancient woodland and landscaped glades. Keep an eye out for native red squirrels as you make your way upwards towards the tumbling 65ft waterfall. Combine a walk to the falls with a bite to eat in our cosy café.
A wander around High Close is truly enchanting, with autumnal views that open up across Loughrigg Tarn and Elterwater. Perched between Elterwater and Grasmere, High Close is home to many rare trees and shrubs from all around the globe.
