The Local Landscape
The Area Around Seatoller Farm
Seatoller is surrounded by traditional Lakeland farmland, unique upland Atlantic oak woodland, clean rivers, all to walk and enjoy right on your doorstep.
The woodlands surrounding Seatoller, Low Stile, High Stile and Johnny Wood, are all designated SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) and SAC (Special Area of Conservation), making them incredibly valuable and precious sites. Stephen works closely with the National Trust and neighbouring farmers to ensure the wood pasture is carefully managed in order to maintain the biodiversity, particularly mosses and lichens, in accordance with English Nature guidelines. Removal of standing or deadwood from the woodlands in Borrowdale is prohibited as they are protected areas of outstanding beauty and heritage.
