Dodd Wood

Dodd Wood is a fantastic place to get some amazing views of the northern Lake District. The network of walking trails will take you deep into the woodland and walk to the top of Dodd Summit for views across the fells.

See the magnificent Bassenthwaite ospreys from the specially designed viewpoints from April to September. The Lake District Osprey Project provides protection for the birds and interpretation for visitors.

You may also see red squirrels at the feeding station in the wood throughout the year.
