Throughout this book are many hidden gems that you will not have heard of before, but of course, that's why you buy travel books like mine! To unearth magical places, some of which, you never knew existed. Here at Wyresdale Park, we've unearthed a true unsung Lancashire hero here. Some of you will remember seeing Wyresdale Park on the hit Channel 4 TV show ‘Country house Rescue' but for those of you that didn't watch the show, no visit to Lancashire is complete without a trip to the park and being able to enjoy the beauty of the lake and Nicky Nook fell. I love the way the Whewell family have utilised the estate with the fishing and boating lake, Glamping holiday cabins and the addition of the popular Apple Store café really does go towards making this a Top 100 Attraction.
Having been closed to visitors for a hundred and fifty years, Wyresdale Park has woken from its slumbers and opened the grounds to visitors. The walled garden café offers homemade, locally sourced food served from the restored old stone apple store. The neighboring lake offers the opportunity for boutique lodge accommodation and boating. The gardens are free to roam around and every Autumn the Hall and Home Farm are opened for a family run festival-inspired weekend. The estate includes the locally renowned Nicky Nook Fell and Grizedale Valley, perfect for family walks and offering renowned views out to the Irish Sea. Wyresdale Park is family owned-and-run, and welcome visitors from across the UK.
