The session is entirely outdoors on the farm, so casual clothing, waterproofs and boots are strongly recommended.

Please be aware there are slippery and steep surfaces.

We have toilets and hand washing facilities at the farm.



Coffees, cakes, snacks and full chef cooked meals are available at 'Herdwicks' Cafe, just 2 miles away in Coniston village.
You can drive there in a matter of minutes, or you can walk or cycle off road, the entire way via a wonderful, surfaced footpath going round the farm, over streams and rivers and through peaceful broadleaved woodland straight into the village.
Wheelchair access is possible by pre arrangement.  It is dependent on weather and ground condition on the day.

Toilet and hand washing facilities are fully accessible.
Herdwicks cafe is fully accessible and has a designated parking area outside.

Our sheep are familiar with our own dogs but can become very scared by dogs they don't know. Even very friendly ones! We love dogs, but it's best not to bring them with you on the Herdwick Experience itself.

Herdwicks Cafe is 110% dog friendly and will make you and your pooch very welcome :)
