Lake District Deer Watch Walk

Join former National Park Ranger, mountain guide and naturalist John White on the renowned Deer Watch walk in the Lake District's peaceful Martindale. 

An off-the-beaten-track Lakeland gem, Martindale is accessed from Pooley Bridge on Ullswater via a single track road. It's a bit of an effort, but it's well worth it! Parking at Dale Head, we walk easily up into Bannerdale - with only one very short hill, the shorter walk is suitable for virtually everyone. The longer walks can take in Beda Fell and Heck Crag, or even Rampsgill Head and the High Street ridge.

Walks are available as 2 hours, Half-day or Full-day. Along with spotting Red Deer, there is much more of interest in this fascinating area, from the old hunting lodge where The Kaiser hunted deer with the Earl of Lonsdale, to Neolithic and Bronze age settlements and lots of other wildlife.

Deer Watch walks run every Thursday for all to join, or can be arranged on any day for groups of 2 or more.
