You’ll fall in love with the breathtaking views
There’s nothing like a lengthy stroll in the countryside, especially if you’re exploring the treasures of West Cumbria and the scenic River Bleng valley.
You’ll have a remarkable time visiting the Blengdale Forest, a glorious retreat overlooking miles of stunning fields and striking coastline.
Park the car in nearby Gosforth, and be sure to wear some comfy walking boots for the one-and-a-half-hour hike to the highest point of the forest.
The time it takes is well worth the wait to see the remote Wasdale landscapes, with gorgeous mountain and lake views.
It’s quite simply breathtaking here, and the postcard-worthy shots you’ll take will be rooted in your mind for years to come.
Take a few moments to relax on one of the benches dotted around, gazing at the birds flying past and the sun peeking through the trees.
You’ll feel a sense of calm and tranquility, breathing in the fresh country air and already mapping out your future visits here.
Perhaps the dog will also love roaming the grounds and making the forest their new playground.
Stop for a Cumbrian delicacy
You’ll have to try a famous Gosforth Bakery pie after your visit to Blengdale Forest.
Embark on the hike back as a steamy, hot treat will be waiting for you at the finish line.
Maybe you’d like to sit down somewhere cosy?
The Lion and The Lamb is just a one-minute walk away, offering a delightful outside space for alfresco drinks.
Get comfy on one of the benches, cold beer in hand, and look back on the marvellous scenery you’ve explored.

We’re sure they’ll love the forest walks as much as you do.
