A lovely circular walk in Low Row
I have written up this walk primarily with Hillcrest Cottage guests in mind however it is such a lovely walk I thoroughly recommend it to Pry House Farm B&B guests too. Its not a long walk and easy going. Allow approx 2 hours and perhaps combine it with a visit to Reeth or Richmond. A perfect day out.
There are two tracks running parallel to Hillcrest. Take the lower track past the copper beech tree. Do not take the left hand fork down to the road but carry straight on along the track and past Mellbecks Cottage and the impressive Brass Nappa House and Hall.
After a few yards you will come to a waymarker with blue marker for bridleways and a yellow marker indicating a public footpath. Follow the yellow marker (public footpath) the follows the wall.
Peep over the wall. You may be in for a surprise!
Another Mrs Calvert owns these alpaccas and takes visitors 'Alpacca Walking' around Low Row Alpacca Walks Its a very peaceful and relaxing pastime and great fun too. Cath is very knowledgeable about the area. This is a great way to gain insider information from a local.
The path winds it way along the riverside, over wooden bridges that spanning small becks full of water making its way to the river. The landscape varies from pasture, meadow and woodland. Finally the path curves left, over a wooden walkway to steps that take you up a winding path to the road.
