Linskeldfield Tarn

Linskeldfield Tarn is a superb nature reserve tucked away amidst rolling farmland in North Cumbria – the Lake District, with the magnificent mountain of Skiddaw as its backdrop.

This tranquil setting offers six acres of peat and wetland, which is home to a wide range of wildlife including birds, otters, frogspawn, red squirrels and carp. The tarn itself provides a rare chance to observe the wildlife from the comfort of a custom-built, twelve person birdwatching hide. The site boasts an excellent range of birds including Shelducks, Oyster Catchers, Shovelers , Pintail and Little Grebes.

There is ample, free car parking available on site and the terrain is flat, which is ideal for those who require wheelchair access.

This wildlife sanctuary is located on farmland that is home to no fewer than 16,000 free-range laying hens. It is easily accessible from the nearby Osprey watching centre at Dodd Wood and from the well-known, picturesque market towns of Keswick (12 miles) and Cockermouth (6 miles).
