The Lake District National Park Authority has been criticised for trying to sell seven plots of land in the national park.
They include Yewbarrow Woods, which the authority has failed to sell for the second time, and Stickle Tarn.
Campaigners say they should stay in public ownership.
Yewbarrow Woods is 35 acres of wild woodland in a quiet Lake District valley near Kendal.
It's a Site of Special Conservation so development is restricted. It has a deer fence around its perimeter to maintain the habitat for other wildlife and needs regular cash to maintain it.
Local residents would rather it remained owned and maintained by the National Park.
Two of the properties that the authority put up for sale have been sold: Lady Wood near Grasmere and Long Bridge near Keswick.
But the decision was controversial and local communities successfully slowed the sale of 3 other properties by registering them as a community asset.
Yewbarrow Woods and Waterside Knott near Newby Bridge were marketed again.
And so the quest to find an owner for this idyllic countryside continues.
