Trip Planner: Europe / UK / England / Cumbria / Lake District / Eden District / Penrith / Aqua Sana - Whinfell Forest
Whinfell Forest is now a small area of woodland in the parish of Brougham, Cumbria that lies south east of Penrith in Cumbria and just off the A66 road leading to Appleby-in-Westmorland. The forest is a short distance from the Lake District national park and is surrounded by a large number of woodlands that are located west of the Pennines. It is notable today for the presence of Center Parcs and a Red Squirrel reserve. It was notable historically for its associations with Lady Anne Clifford, Brougham Castle and Inglewood Forest.
Whinfell Forest has existed since at least 1203 when it "formed part of King John's grant of the Barony of Westmorland to Robert de Veteripont". In 1283 it was divided between Isabella and Idonea, daughters of Robert II de Vieuxpont. It is frequently mentioned in the diaries of Lady Anne Clifford (1590-1676) as she travelled in the area visiting Brougham Castle and Appleby-in-Westmorland.
