Horse Riding

Horse riders are very welcome to enjoy the Ennerdale Valley and have the same rights as cyclists to use the forest roads and bridleways. Bowness Knott offers the best access to the valley for those arriving by vehicle as it provides direct access to the forest road and bridleway network around the valley.

Please note that the roads leading to Bowness Knott are narrow with some blind bends. If towing a trailer to Bowness Knott be aware that you may have to reverse to allow others to pass and that you may meet a lorry carrying timber.
