Holme Wood

Holme Wood Approach courtesy of Ann BowkerHolme Wood, a mixed woodland of conifers and deciduous trees, runs for a mile along Loweswater's shore and up the fellside to the 900-foot height. Burnbank Fell and Carling Knott look down on the trees. Alders, oak, ash, sycamore, mountain ash, elm, birch, large-leafed lime, and palmate-leafed chestnut make up the broad-leaved collection.

Holme Wood Path Near The Top courtesy of Ann BowkerA walk leads through the woods from Watergate Farm at Loweswater's southeast end. Adding to the attractions along the pathway are Holme Beck and Holme Force.

Holme Wood is reached by foot from the dead end road at Watergate Farm off a minor road from the B5289 south of Cockermouth.Holme Wood courtesy of Ann Bowker
