Whinlatter walks from the door

A view here of Thornthwaite village and the cottages (you can just about see them) from St Mary’s church.

Walk straight up into Whinlatter Forest Park behind the cottages where there are miles of trails spanning both sides of Whinlatter pass, many of them with junction markers. The paths are very well defined and being on a mountainside are moderately hilly in places. You will walk up through trees, past streams, over little bridges and onto flatter sections contouring the hillside to give magnificent views of Skiddaw, Bassenthwaite Lake and along to Derwentwater. From the forest trails you can also access felltops such as Barf, Lord’s Seat and Whinlatter Top.

What to do in Whinlatter (print off walking trail maps from here).

You will find a selection of maps and guide books in the cottages to get you going. We also live next door and spend many happy hours in Whinlatter with our two dogs Maisie and Milo so know it really well. We are on hand if you have any questions on route planning etc.
