Walk through Rural Cumbria to enjoy ancient woodland, ending at a family-run pub

Miltonrigg Woods is an exceptional and atmospheric place. This ancient woodland is a stunning feature of the Cumbrian landscape, displaying vibrant flowers and magnificent ancient trees, as well as wetland and pond areas.

With plenty to see, excellent access facilities and a number of benches at key points to provide a welcome respite, this woodland is ideal for walkers and is a lovely place for a walk. It is also located just a few kilometers south of Hadrian’s Wall and other historical landmarks, making it a great destination for an extended stay.




Miltonrigg is located to the east of Carlisle near the town of Brampton, just off the A69. It is located in a rural area surrounded by stunning Cumbria countryside, with the south-eastern corner of the site, known as Folly Wood, separated from the main body of the wood by a railway line.

If you haven’t guessed, our walk for the week is Miltonrig Wood. It is a shaded walk along flat paths made of crushed quarry stone. OS’s new Pathfinder Lake District and Cumbria gave us the idea of ​​walking.

Pathfinder Lake District and Cumbria Accessible Routes for Everyone is written by author Mike Routledge, who lives and works in Cumbria. Mike is a volunteer at the Calvert Trust based near Keswick, a specialist outdoor residential center offering a range of accessible activity breaks for people with disabilities.

Once you’ve finished this walk, you can head to the market town of Brampton and relax in a family-run pub. The well-stocked pub bar is home to a wide range of gins, as well as a selection of wines and other spirits. And of course, there are also some real 5* Cask Marque beers.

“Our pub has a relaxed atmosphere and welcomes locals, visitors to the area, overnight residents, business people, families and even four-legged friends,” the website explains.
