A British beauty that inspired the words of Beatrix Potter, Arthur Ransome and Wordsworth, discover the natural landscapes that make up the unforgettable Lake District. There’s so much to explore on this carefully crafted tour, from the history of Sizergh Castle, Muncaster Castle and views of The Old Man of Coniston, through to the historical voyages of the Steam Yacht Gondola and Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway. But of course the one thing you can’t miss is the breathtaking landscapes around every turn, driving through iconic scenery and exploring by foot with chances to get to the heart of each destination on guided woodland and lakeside walks around Coniston Water and Buttermere.

Frequently Asked Questions

What walking equipment do I need?

Good quality walking shoes or boots are a must. We also recommend a waterproof jacket, comfortable rucksack, hat, sunglasses, sun cream, water bottle and clothes that can be layered easily. Hiking poles are not necessary, but you may wish to take them.

Who guides the walks?

Most of our walks are guided by accredited local professionals, who have intimate knowledge of the routes and can offer meaningful information about the history and nature of the area.

What size is the average group?

On each walk we prefer an intimate atmosphere, so you can expect around 10 to 15 people. Depending on the nature of the walk, the group may occasionally be slightly larger. The wider group size will be around 25 people, mainly during coach transfers.

Will the routes always be as advertised?

While we will always try to adhere to the route as advertised, we may be required to modify the itinerary due to local conditions. Our guides may also make minor changes to tailor the walk to the group.
