No Zip Lines in Glenridding

Just Say No to the Proposed Zip Wires in Glenridding

My posts here are normally celebrating the natural beauty and tranquillity of the Lake District, and of the Ullswater and Helvellyn area in particular – so I apologise in advance for using this platform for a bit of soap boxing. However it is precisely because I love the Lake District as it is, and want to protect it for the benefit of all, that I am about to rant on against the ludicrous proposals being mooted to install four, 100 mph, 1 mile long zip lines in Glenridding by Helvellyn and Ullswater.

The Story so far…

The Lake District National Park (LDNP) has issued a planning advice statement to a company who are considering developing a new ‘attraction’ in Glenridding – at least 4 parallel, mile long, zip lines, with operating speeds of…

Farm Experience Days at Crookabeck Farm

Crookabeck Farm Experiences

Get Hands-on at a Local Lake District Farm

Have you ever dreamed of living on a farm, caring for the animals and breathing in the fresh country air? Well now you live the dream (if only for a day!) at Crookabeck Farm in Patterdale, in the heart of the Lake District.

Just a 10 minute walk from our Patterdale Cottage, Crookabeck Farm is home to Herdwick Sheep, Angora Goats and Chickens. They now offer 1/2 and full day Farm Experience Sessions where you can get hands-on with the animals. You’ll help to feed them, learn how to care for them, and even have a go at working their magnificent sheepdog Fly.

The days are tailored to suit your interests and needs, and depending on the time of year you’ll get involved with all aspects of animal husbandry. If you visit at Easter time you can help deliver the new born lambs and care for them. In the summer you can help prepare the Sheep and Goats for the many agricultural shows across Cumbria. Crookabeck also produces a fine range of Herdwick Wool and Angora Mohair products which they sell in their farm shop, and you can learn about and help with the processing of the fleeces and their conversion into the finished products, from wool balls to jumpers and even dog leads!

The farm days run throughout the year and cater for couples, families, and groups of up to 12. If you’re there for the whole day you’ll get a wholesome lunch in the farmhouse kitchen, and for the half day sessions you’ll get a snack and a hot drink. They also offer special wildlife watching outings at certain times of the year, including badger watching in the evening, Red Deer watching in the autumn on Place Fell, and keep an eye out  for Red Squirrels, Roe Deer, Buzzards and Kestrels throughout the year.

Best of all if you’re staying at our one of our Ullswater Cottages you’ll get 10% off the price of your Farm Experience Day. Just let Adam and Charlene know where you’re staying when you book.
