Accessibility Guide

Local Area

Wain Garth Cottage has fabulous footpaths, bridleways and bike tracks right on its doorstep. It is conveniently placed just a short distance from Grizedale Visitor Centre - where one can enjoy the forest on stunning way marked trails, Go Ape tree top adventures, zip trekking and segways, and amazing mountain biking.
Grizedale Forest sits within the Lake District World Heritage Site designated on 'cultural landscape'. The forest is a place for people: a top-ten Lake District tourist attraction, a cultural hotspot, and a sanctuary for relaxation, for exercise and play.

It is the place to visit to experience art in the landscape and art inspired by the landscape. It is also renowned internationally as the UK's first forest for sculpture. It has expanded into contemporary arts and provides unique gallery spaces for a diverse range of exhibitions - all inspired by the landscape. Guests can experience over 50 artworks throughout the forest. The collection features permanent and temporary sculpture from artists including Andy Goldsworthy, Richard Harris, and Lucy Tomlins, Charlie Whinney, and Greyworld

The forest is a working forest - with mixed broadleaf, coniferous and semi-ancient oak woodlands, upland heath and grassland. The Forestry Commission carefully manages the forest with a balance of producing timber with conservation in mind. Grizedale Forest provides habitats to some of the UK's most prized wildlife, including stoat, badger, deer, buzzard and red kite.

It is also a stone's throw away from Coniston Water, and Hawkshead and Sawrey - the home of Beatrix Potter.

We had a delightful stay at Waingarth Cottage in the Lake District. The house was stunning, particularly its spacious kitchen which was perfect for our group's cooking and dining together. The house's surroundings were equally impressive, offering breathtaking views. The nearby town's friendly locals and enjoyable meals at local pubs enriched our experience. A heartfelt thanks to The Coppermines who were incredibly patient and helpful, especially when we accidentally locked ourselves out on New Year's Day. Their prompt response was much appreciated. An unforgettable stay!

Had a very enjoyable weekend with family (6 adults) and 1 dog. Cottage had everything we needed and was large enough for us not to feel on top of each other. Location was perfect for activities in Grizedale Forest and the local pub was very welcoming.

Really nice cottage to stay in the Lakes, nicely decorated and plenty of room with a big kitchen area to socialise. Very nice views and location. Really well managed with good communication between host and customer. Thanks :)

Lovely cottage, cosy especially after the long walks with the dog. Lovely garden. Located very close to the pub, which has great food.

We had a really lovely stay at Wain Garth, the good weather was a bonus! Lots of opportunity for good walks right from the front door, and the village pub a couple of minutes away is very welcoming. Would certainly recommend. The cottage is very well equipped and comfortable. There's a lovely spacious garden at the back, with good views over the fells. Ideal for getting away from it all, even, I surmise, if it rains.
