Grizedale Sculpture Trek

Green lanes, internationally renowned sculptures and breathtaking views

Andy Goldsworthy ~ Taking a Wall for a Walk

Since 1977 leading international artists have created sculpture at Grizedale Forest, 10 square miles of natural woodland in the Lake District near Coniston Water. Every Wednesday we lead a trek through the forest with our native Fell ponies carrying everything we need for a hot picnic lunch by a tranquil tarn.

Prices start from £80 per person (£50 under 18’s) including hot picnic lunch

Home made soup

Local cheese and artisan bread

What we’ll do

Start the day making friends with your pack pony. Then we load the packsaddles with everything we need for a hot picnic lunch. Suitable for families, of all ages, the walk is about 4 miles round trip and takes approx 5 hours including lunch

Lunch by a tranquil tarn

The therapeutic benefits of horses are known to help bring us inner peace and a sense of well being. As a herd animal, horses in particular are attuned to the feelings of others and are an ideal calming influence.

Grizedale Forest is a haven for a rich variety of wildlife including red and roe deer, squirrels, badgers, foxes, grouse and woodpeckers.
