Rookhow's own Quakers' Wood is a wonderful wilderness with campfires, trees to climb, dens to make, hide and seek to play, a bubbling beck to wander by & when you stay at Rookhow you get it all to yourselves!

12 acres of ancient Atlantic oak woodland, rich in lichens and mosses, Quakers' Wood provides a bio-diverse habitat for many creatures. The buildings at Rookhow are home to 3 species of bats and deer are often spotted in the Rusland Valley.
