Birkdale House Private Guided Estate Walk


7th April 2022

Join our local survival expert and mountain leader James Dixon on a guided 12km walk exploring the Matson Ground Estate and its summits including Brant Fell, School Knott and Grandsire.

Our walk will take us along ancient byways, wooded trails and fields with some spectacular Lakeland scenery to enjoy throughout.

James lives just around the corner and knows the area intimately. He will show you some of the Estate’s hidden gems and point out the classic Lakeland summits and fells throughout the day.

As the local bushcraft expert, he is passionate about trees, plants and fungi and is always keen to share his knowledge. By the end of the day you should be happily identifying trees and edible plants, have loads of new information about the local flora, fauna and history along with a new perspective of the countryside.

Although the route is around 12km the day is yours so can be shortened if little legs are tired. Just put on your walking shoes, grab your jacket and get exploring.

A packed lunch filled to the brim with local produce and a day pack are included to keep you going throughout the experience and there will be ample time for breaks and to enjoy the scenery.

James will meet you at Birkdale House at 10.00am and will aim to return before 4.00pm.

Cost is £60 per person – min 5 people. For more information, please do get in touch.
