WALK 5: WATERSMEET AND THE WATERMILL CAFÉ

Lancashire Life - - TEA AND TREKS -

Wildflower-filled woods, dreamy views of the fells and two pretty vil­lages are en­coun­tered in the quiet coun­try­side at the base of the Lake Dis­trict’s North­ern Fells. Start from Cald­beck, walk down­stream to the blue­bell woods be­side the River Caldew and then head through mead­ows and wood­land to idyl­lic Hes­ket New­mar­ket. Coun­try lanes and farm paths lead back to Cald­beck where a lime­stone gorge hides a dra­matic water­fall and the pic­turesque ru­ins of a once busy bob­bin mill.

Fair­trade pro­duce, in­clud­ing gen­er­ous plat­ters, are served up in a re­stored watermill fur­ther down­stream. In sum­mer, sit out­side in the shel­tered garden over­look­ing the vil­lage cricket pitch.
