ABOUT THE LAKE DISTRICT
England’s largest and most popular National Park is home to Scafell Pike – its highest mountain; and Wastwater – its deepest lake. Around 15 million people pitch up each year to explore the region’s fells and countryside, and it’s not hard to see why. With some of Britain’s finest scenery and grandest views – from picturesque lakes to green valleys and woodlands to spectacular fells – it truly is one of the best places in Britain to enjoy the great outdoors.
ABOUT THE WALKS
With the base for the weekend on the banks of the River Kent in the famous market town of Kendal, the guided walk on Saturday takes you over to the small and quaint village of Rydal. From here you’ll strike out on a circular walk following the coffin route to Grasmere. It was called this as it was used to carry coffins from Rydal to church burial in Grasmere. The path then heads across to the valley of Little Langdale where you can have lunch at the Eltermere Inn (own cost). In the afternoon you will take a gentle riverside walk down the River Brathay to Skelwith Bridge, before heading up to beautiful Loughrigg Tarn and back to Rydal.
The half day on Sunday takes in the charming Edwardian seaside resort of Grange-over-Sands. Walk through woods to the summit of Hampsfell to enjoy stunning views over Morecambe Bay and the Lake District Fells. Then follow in the footsteps of monks to the village of Cartmel with its charming selection of shops and 12th-century medieval priory church.
Grade: Easy to medium Distance: Approximately 5-14 km per day.
Walking boots are essential and you must make sure you are fit and well enough to take part in the guided walks.
