Walking

Our walking options start from the farm gate

The Lake District is one of the best-loved landscapes and a World Heritage Site so it’s no surprise that walkers head our way to explore the mountains and lakes. For those who don’t want to venture too far, we also have an on-site farm trail, and plenty of on-the-doorstep walking options, all with interesting scenery.

Fairy door trail

The little folk on the farm have some new doors. 12 of them. Each showing a type of plant or flower that grows around Low Sizergh.

This is a new part of our farm trail, created to help people of all ages to remember the magic at their feet as they explore.

Pick up a fairy tick list from the farm shop and see if you can find all 12 doors. You might also see some of the plants and flowers growing nearby.

Farm trail

Our real-life farm trail starts just outside of the 17th century Westmorland stone barn, which houses the farm shop, café and gallery. En route you’ll see where your food comes from – passing the cows and hens in the fields, the vegetable plots, and the fruit trees in the orchard.

There is a huge variety of plant, animal and bird life here at Low Sizergh, which is ever changing with the seasons and co-exists with the livestock. As you walk the trail, which is just under 2 miles, you’ll learn more about how our natural and holistic farming principles are put into practice around this beautiful farm.

You can easily extend the farm trail to take in the historic Gunpowder works, there’s a link to the walk here

Dog walking

All of the walks on the farm and in surrounding areas are suitable for dog walking. Please do follow the law though – dogs must be controlled so that they do not scare or disturb livestock or wildlife. On open access land they have to be kept on short leads from March 1 to July 31, and all year round near sheep. Close supervision is also required on public rights of way.

Nearby routes

The peaceful countryside around Sizergh Caravan and Camping is ideal for relaxing strolls and the surrounding fells offer glorious views of the nearby Lyth Valley. Helsing-ton, Brigsteer, Levens, Sedgwick and Natland are all within striding distance. With too many options to list in detail, a map of the local area is highly recommended.

Please do take a look at our noticeboard for route suggestions.

Lake District routes

The Lake District is often referenced as one of Britain’s best walking destinations. There are good walks and inspiring views almost everywhere you look. The walks are slightly further afield, but still easily reachable by car. We highly recommend the National Trust website (search for Lake District and then filter by activity) for memorable walks

Some of our personal favourites include the Langdales, Tarn Hows and Gummer’s How. The mountains of Scafell Pike (England’s tallest mountain) and the ascent along Striding Edge to Helvellyn provide a rewarding challenge if you are experienced and well—equipped hikers.
