Welcome to Ennerdale
Rising abruptly out of the coastal plain of West Cumbria Ennerdale is one of the most remote of Cumbria valleys and has a distinctive character of its own. There is a sense of tranquillity, ruggedness, self-will, wildness, a feeling more of Scotland or Scandinavia. Wild Ennerdale is one of the UK’s largest wildland partnerships.
It is widely recognised for its partnership working, future natural approach and for pioneering innovative ways of upland management which blur boundaries between forestry and farming.
The Wild Ennerdale partnership invites you to explore this unique valley and experience its special sense of wildness.
