A Walk in Coombe Woods, Armathwaite, Cumbria

Rob, Brock and I had a lovely walk in the woodlands and countryside around the village of Armathwaite in Cumbria today.

The walk is 3.7 miles long and there are some slight uphill climbs, but I would class it as easy going. Click here for a version of the walk.

The walk was most enjoyable on this warm day. Lunch at the pub was excellent, with a friendly landlord, ice cold lagers and plenty of food. Brock was given a bowl of cold water.
