Lake District

The Lake District is England’s only true mountain region and, as guests on our guided walking holidays soon discover, contains some of the most stunningly beautiful scenery in the world.

The valleys which radiate from the central massif of mountains contain long, deep, glacially formed lakes which provide a marvellous contrast to the spectacular peaks and give the area its name.

The scenery in the Lake District never fails to leave the visitor with a sense of awe, and an understanding of why this landscape inspired a generation of poets.

This unique landscape, which has been nominated as one of National Geographic’s top ten ‘must-see’ destinations in the world, has a superb network of footpaths and tracks which stretches through the valleys and along the lake shores, as well as traversing the flanks and summits of the high fells, making it accessible to all.

The individual walks will depend upon the grade of the tour, however, they will all pass through the wonderful scenery of the valleys and lakeshores of the central Lake District, visiting Rydal, Langdale, the surging waterfall at Skelwith Bridge, pre-historic Castlerigg stone circle, and lonely Easedale Tarn.

Memories of the breathtaking panorama from Loughrigg Terrace, and the superb view of Windermere and the Coniston Fells from Jenkin Crag will never be forgotten.

We stay at the impressive Inn at Grasmere [formerly the Grasmere Red Lion Hotel], which stands in the centre of the picturesque mountain village of Grasmere, close to the church where William Wordsworth, the Lakeland poet, lies buried. The Inn at Grasmere offers a warm welcome, excellent accommodation and superb food. All bedrooms have ensuite bathroom facilities.
