These Boots Were Made for Walking
What would a trip to Cumbria be without a walk along Windermere or up one of its many hills? Here are just a few of the trips you should make.
Where else could we start but with England’s highest peak? A staggering 3,209ft, Scafell Pike is actually less daunting than it first seems, although it’s best avoided in the rain or snow.
The twin ridges of Helvellyn are what makes it famous, along with some fairly steep drops. This mountain is certainly not for the faint of heart! The best routes to take start in either Glenridding or Patterdale, so get out there early and get climbing!
Situated at the northeast of Keswick, this fell is a little quieter than the rest, which can make it a rather tranquil choice. With several different routes depending on your experience level, this is something for everyone!
Coniston Old Man
One of the most recognisable fells with one of the most recognisable names, this popular hill has a variety of routes to take your pick from, the most popular being straight up the east side of the mountain.

The lodge was lovely!! Well decorated, comfortable, homely, inviting & in a stunning area of tranquility which was far enough from the tourist spots to feel secluded but close enough for convenience. Tony was extremely kind in allowing us to stay on different days than normally scheduled as it was a special occasion and we were very grateful for his generosity in doing so. After the expectations of the lodge and location exceeded our expectations we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to friends and family for a holiday and have already done so since returning. We didn’t get to use the hot tub as often as hoped but after a 20 minute minute soak I was glad we had it available. The locals are friendly and quite honestly we would have been happy if we spent all of our time in the lodge as it was so nice to be away from London and just hear the sheep and birds instead of cars and traffic! Thank you Tony, we will certainly consider coming again.
I will definitely be booking this again, I had regular contact with the owner who made the process very easy too.
The lodge was very spacious and well turned out and even had walk-in wardrobes too! It had every mod-con you could think of and it was those little extras that really made it a home from home.
My family and I have just returned from a weekend break at this lodge and it did not disappoint. The photos are a real picture of what it is like and even in the cold weather the hot tub was a welcome bonus!
My mum and I had such a lovely time. The chalet was very well kitted out and comfortable. Amazing setting, beautiful scenery and we were so lucky with the weather. It was great we could take our dog, who also had a lovely time. I can’t recommend it highly enough and Tony was so accommodating, as we had to cancel last minute last year due to personal unforeseen circumstances. He is a true gentleman!
