Please note Laura and her four children have not walked this walk, photos and words from @whereronniewalked:
Setmurthy Woods is a place where you can take lots of paths but really can’t get lost! It can be found just off the road inbetween Cockermouth and Embleton. Parking is alongside the road, and free. Nearest postcode: CA13 9SQ. Setmurthy is a lovely woodland cared for by Forestry England.
For our first trip we stayed mainly to the fire roads, but did do a bit of wandering along the paths and trails made by walkers and mountain bikers. We didn’t pass many walkers, but we did come across quite a few mountain bikers. Do watch out on the small single tracks as they go quite fast!
