Whinlatter Forest

Whinlatter Forest is England’s only true mountain forest. This beautiful forest is known for its abundance of wildlife and myriad of adventure activities for all ages. Whinlatter Forest has stunning views across The Lake District, which provides some of the most beautiful scenery in the country.

Whinlatter is home to an abundance of wildlife, including the majestic Osprey. Visitors are often found relaxing in the Visitor Centre watching the Ospreys on camera; or sitting on the balcony at Siskins café, eating homemade cakes and watching beautiful birds on the birdfeeders. This wildlife haven was expanded when Whinlatter was designated as a Red Squirrel reserve; thanks to this dedication there is a healthy population of Red Squirrels thriving in the forest today.

Whinlatter Forest provides a perfect way to explore and discover the outdoors in The Lake District. It is one giant adventure playground - with bike shops and hire, and Go Ape high ropes course and segways.
