Martindale Deer Forest, Cumbria
What’s there: For over 300 years, herds of England's only pure-blood wild red deer have been roaming the Martindale Estate between Ullswater and Haweswater in the Lake District. These deer are the largest land mammals in the UK and despite their name, they start off a grey-brown colour before turning reddish-brown in the summer. The best times to see them are during the breeding season in September and October or from mid-May to July when the females give birth.
