The Cumbrian Way is a Wildlife Haven! Cumbria is renowned for its diverse and abundant wildlife, and the Cumbrian Way offers an excellent opportunity to encounter some of the region's fascinating creatures. As you traverse the trail, you may spot red deer, wild ponies, red squirrels, and a variety of bird species, including buzzards, ospreys, and golden eagles.

"I spent a year working up near Everest in 2016 where Dal Baht makes up a large proportion of your weekly diet in the mountains. It’s the signature dish of Nepal. Recipes which have evolved high-up in extreme regions are always a good bet when you are looking for a comfort meal." - John
