Eamont Bridge to Lowther
This 3 to 5 mile route is a fantastic walk for those with older children who enjoy being on their bikes! The distance of this walk depends on where you park and whether you walk all the way to Lowther. On this occasion I was with my two youngest children so we decided to get dropped off closer to the entrance of Lowther Holiday Park, saving us about 1 mile of walking.
If you are unable to get dropped off at the holiday park entrance then there is lay-by parking as you enter Eamont Bridge, over the road from the entrance to Lowther Holiday Park, postcode CA10 2JB. From here you walk approximately 1 mile towards the Lowther Holiday Park, be careful for cars on this road. On arrival at the park you continue through the barrier and up past the playground on your right. Shortly after this you will reach a gate to enter into the forest, from here you will see a map and you can decide which route you would like to take ? There is so much to explore, you could head to Lowther Castle or Askham and link with some other of our walks in this area.
