Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Dodd Wood, Keswick CA12 4QD, UK

Dodd Wood is a fantastic place to capture some of the most stunning views of the northern Lake District. The network of walking trails will take you deep into the woodland where you can walk to the top of Dodd Summit for views across the fells. From April to September see the magnificent Bassenthwaite ospreys from specially designed viewpoints. The Lake District Osprey Project provides protection for the birds and interpretation for visitors. The return of ospreys to Bassenthwaite Lake in 2001 was the culmination of several years’ hard work to encourage them
to breed.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Mirehouse & Gardens, Mirehouse A591, Keswick CA12 4QE England

Until the middle of the last century Mirehouse was lived in by one large household. Now the house and surrounding buildings have been adapted for several households, therefore remaining home to a substantial number of people. The Earl of Derby built the present house in 1666 and only sold it once, parting with it in 1688 to Roger Gregg. Since then it has passed through inheritance only. This beautiful family run historic house benefits from gardens, lakeshore and woodland playgrounds, and is open for visitors to enjoy whatever the weather. Besides an interesting collection of furniture and portraits within the house, there is a very unusual display of manuscripts. These include James Spedding's collection of Francis Bacon's works as well as letters from Wordsworth, Tennyson, Southey, Thomas Carlyle and John Constable (all friends of the family). The present owner's father arrived there in 1961 and found the house in poor condition. Since then many repairs have been made to both contents and structure, including tackling two severe outbreaks of dry rot. In 1981 the decision was made to open the ground floor of the house to the public.
