  • Wildlife haven with over 70 bird species and 1000+ native trees/shrubs
  • Several walks around the park with info on more at reception

When David Bellamy praises a park, it’s a fairly safe bet that it knows its wildlife and conservation stuff. And so it is with luxury park Flusco Wood in Penrith on the edge of the Lake District National Park, which was pronounced very praiseworthy by the great man himself when he came to see how all was getting on.

Over 70 species of birds have been recorded at the site; around a thousand native trees and shrubs have been planted to encourage local critters to visit, and many wild plants have already decided this is the place to put down roots. There are safe walks for sprogs and their owners around the park, and the area is continually being updated and landscaped to make it extra spruceworthy.

The amenities are blooming good too: a centrally heated building with roomy showers, basins and washrooms, all with free hot water, and an ensuite family/disabled shower room with basin and loo, shaver sockets and coin-operated hairdryers.

There’s also a launderette with coin-operated washing machine, dryer and ironing facilities, a play area and a drying room, boot wash area and dishwashing area. A well-stocked shop has groceries, provisions and Lake District gifts (open from April to November).

For wildlife walks and more off site, Flusco Wood has stacks of tourist info in its reception to help narrow down a few dozen or so Lake District attractions.

Open from 19 March to 30 October
