Gosling Sike

This is a lovely little walk with little ones and one that I hope to do in the future on a Tikes Hikes for pre schoolers. Gosling Sike is an organic farm and is the site of @cumbriawildlifetrust northern office. It is located in Houghton, postcode CA3 0LD, and has car parking.

My children love to visit The Lost Words wildlife garden at all different times of year seeing all the changing seasons and watching the wildlife come to life! You are able to walk along the pastures and boardwalks, on this occasion we saw lots of little lambs.

There is also a great space to explore the woodlands surrounding this area and @susansfarmcumbria have been busy building dens and making it forever exciting for the children.

Gosling Sike is a working farm and schools/groups are welcome to visit the farm. This charity really does do so much good for our community, helping promote the outdoors and providing alternative provision for children who really benefit from it. It is a huge thank you from us for your continued fantastic work.

Overall, a lovely short walk that the whole family can enjoy.
