This is a lovely new addition to our existing network of trails accessible from Lowther Castle. The route starts via our River Loop but continues left at the bridge and over to Bampton Grange. Heading through Bampton, you will cycle very quiet roads over to iconic Haweswater where you can enjoy stunning Lakeland scenes from the resevoir bottom.
Before you head back to Lowther, you can rest at RSPB Nature Reserve at Naddle Farm. Advance booking is necessary for some of the highlights which include Badger Watching, Forest Bathing & Breakfast with Squirrels. Don't worry though, if you arrive without notice you can still explore the ancient woodland and sight some wonderful wildlife, from elusive red squirrels playing in the trees to mountain ringlet butterflies who love the alpine wildflowers and of course, a plethera of birdlife.
The return to Lowther Castle picks up the Fell Loop taking in quiet country lanes and dedicated cycle trails.
