Foraging in the Lake District

Foraging from your local landscape is a fast-growing nationwide phenomenon, that is fun, environmentally friendly and good for your pocket.

Foraging from the wild gives you a cheeky sense of satisfaction that you have found your food for free and in this part of the Lake District, there are plenty of opportunities for finding tasty things whilst out on a walk.

There are countless other possibilities, many of which we will find on one of our foraging walks here in the Lake District. Colleen takes the lead for these walks, so do get in touch to book a walk with a difference.

At the end of the walk you even get the chance to sit down to a meal made from the ingredients that you’ve collected.

Please contact us to arrange your own Foraging Walk in the Lake District.
