In Search of Bluebell Woods

Every where I’ve been on-line recently someone is talking about the bluebell woods.  I love woods, I love bluebells, I want a piece of this action!

The trouble is we are fairly new to town and I’ve not discovered a woods with bluebells yet. I’ve not looked either, till now.

I asked Dave nicely if we could go to our local hill Warton Crag. There are loads of woods on it. I felt this was my best shot! I also asked if he’d carry his son!  Here we are at the start of our walk:

To the woods we go…

The weather was beautiful, 5 minutes earlier it had been raining with hail. I managed to catch the rain clouds in the distance.  We’re so lucky to have this hill on our doorstep.  It looks out over Morecambe bay, you can see the South Lakes and surrounding areas from it.

Dave and Robot looking over itWe completely veered off track and didnt head to the wooded area.  The Sun drew us out from the trees and up the hill to see the views.  No bluebells up on the top of the hill.Dave and Robot staring into the distance. Sat next to a crag rock looking at the scenery

We walked a different route back down.  I swear I’ve never been on the same route twice up there.  What did we find?  Some bluebells one minute walk from the car.  I teeny tiny patch.

Watch this space!  What are your experiences of bluebell woods?  Have you found some yet?

  1. I love how your walk evelved and just wow to that view down over the valley. It looks like such a typical April day with rain, hail and sunshine. Sounds like you timed your walk perfectly to grab the sun and I bet Robot enjoyed the fresh air too. We have bluebell patches all over the farm and a gorgeous bluebell wood just over the style from our deer field. I’ve been walking our pet goat in there, it is beautiful. Keep looking, I’m sure there will be one near you too, pet goat not included! Thank you so much for sharing your lovely area with me on #CountryKids

      That is the beauty of Morecambe bay! I’d love a pet goat! lol! your farm does look and sound amazing. If we ever make it down South again we shall surely stop in. 🙂

  2. What a gorgeous place to go for a walk – that view is stunning. We’ve been trying to find bluebells too – there is a wood about 30 minutes drive away from us but have been hoping to find some a bit nearer home. Thankfully we managed to find some on a church day out earlier this week so I’m not feeling the need to keep hunting but hope you manage to find some soon as well! 🙂

  3. The best adventures are the ones where you get distracted by beautiful views! I know what you mean about the bluebells though, I keep seeing people talking about them & posting photos yet I can’t find any! Must be a northern thing- I’m in the North East. #effitfriday

  5. Ahhh it sounds like a lovely day out regardless! I think there must be some kind of secret club we’re not in where people are informed of where all these amazing photo op places are….it was the same with all the lavendar photos, EVERYBODY had them but yet according to Google my nearest Lavendar field is 3 hours away?!!! xx

      I still haven’t found a massive patch anywhere but starting to see them on the roadsides etc. THere is still hope!! I don’t think I’ll get down to brockholes though!

      It was such a tiny patch of bluebells! I would like to find a full carpeted wood of them!! I’m starting to stamp my feet like a toddler now! I shall stop honest! Thanks for the comment

  6. Beautiful pictures and I love little ones face in them, you can tell the walk was much enjoyed! You totally motivate me to get my as out of doors more often. If it helps I have not found any bluebells either!#abrandnewday

  7. Sounds like such a fab adventure though! I too went on a Bluebell hunt after seeing lots of bloggers talking about them. I then had a local friend mention it so I knew where to go, but I went just me and the kids and when I got there it seemed very secluded and there was a van parked up, so I wimped out and came home… didn’t fancy walking around the woods on my own.. #PointShoot x
