High Cross and Grizedale Forest walk
This was one of the surprise pluses of Pepper Cottage’s location, as only 1.2miles from the cottage is the car park of High Cross and you are then into Grizedale forest for either cycling or walking.
A long walk that will take around 6 hours, plus a pit stop at The Eagle at Satterthwaite, is the circular walk
around Grizedale forest. The walking is easy as you’ll be utilising the fire tracks / cycle paths of the forest.
From the forest tracks you will have views to the west of Coniston, the Old Man of Consiton and the coast beyond.
You can also rest at the Grizedale centre where you’ll find a cafe, bike shop, Go Ape and other activities and displays.
