Music in the Wood




Music in the Wood is exactly halfway between Keswick and Penrith with easy access to Ullswater,
(5 Mins) Patterdale, (10 Mins) Keswick. (15 Mins)

Lucy’s Barn is on the side of the fell so it is advisable to wear walking boots or wellies, dress warmly, bring a brolly if rain is forecast and don't forget A TORCH!

Lucy's Barn - there is a path all the way to the Barn down a gentle slope. Unfortunately it is not possible to get a wheelchair to the Barn. There is a loo at the Barn.
