Wasdale in Spring

View of Wastwater on the way down

The longer evenings and warmer weather make Spring the perfect time to discover and explore Wasdale. Whether it’s getting your blood-pumping climbing the high fells towering above Wastwater; or enjoying the fresh scents of the countryside bursting into life in our woodlands.

Walking through the fields and fells you will see the young lambs with their mothers, a true reawakening of life in Spring.  In the woodlands early wildflowers are beginning to show themselves, celandine and snowdrops, giving way to stitchwort and bluebells.  Bud burst in the trees as they come back to life after the winter sleep colours our woodlands with fresh greens darkening over time.  And we wonder what the season ahead will bring, waiting on which trees come into leaf first – will it be Ash or will it be Oak?
