If you go down in the woods today...

Gelt Woods is a beautiful walk alongside the river Gelt.  It’s one of our favourites and we think everyone staying at Tottergill should give it a try.  Whether you make a day of it, walking from your front door, (7.5 miles) or opt for a shorter route (5 miles) and drive to the starting point, it’s well worth a visit.  Don’t forget your camera!

There’s a walking route provided in each cottage which will help you get on your way.  At certain times of year, look out for the magical pixie doors which appear at the base of tree stumps and trunks!  A little mystery and fun for children to see how many they can spot!

This walk is fairly steep in parts and the path can be uneven with tree roots, so might not be for everyone, if that's you, we hope you'll enjoy seeing it through the lens of our camera pictured here instead.

Travel Distance: 0 miles to walk straight from Tottergill. 
To drive to the starting point for shorter walk:  Travel 3 miles
