Grizedale Forest

Details

Grizedale Forest is a haven for wildlife. It’s home to the only remaining indigenous woodland herd of red deer in England. There are also roe deer, buzzards and barn owls and red kites, from the Grizedale Red Kite reintroduction programme. look out for all the forest wildlife on your walk or bike ride.

The Brant Wetlands near the Visitor Centre are a great place to see butterflies and dragonflies in the summer whilst the many tarns (small areas of water) scattered across the forest attract other species to drink such as fox and badger.
