    • Our guided hikes in the Lake District take in the best this part of England has to offer. The mountains are all accessible on foot and offer some of the most picturesque scenery in the UK. There are small villages, isolated farms, ancient bridges and dry-stone walls that have existed for centuries.

      The aim is to hike to the tops of the highest and most famous mountain peaks in England via routes that are interesting and achievable in one day. The mountains include Scafell Pike, Helvellyn, the Gables, Haystacks and Catbells. The paths are well-trodden and we will pass small streams, hillsides dotted with sheep and hidden lakes high in the hills. The landscape is breath-taking and, on clear days, you can see for miles: from some summits you can see Ireland and southern Scotland.

      We have chosen to run the trip in summer when then weather is generally more favourable, but we have dates which avoid the school holidays when the valleys can become busy.

      The hotel is in a beautiful location and offers great food and nice rooms. There are cosy pubs and small cafés in most places we visit.
