Some fine walks amongst superb scenery!
Walking the Cumbria Way takes visitors into the heart of the Lake District, between Ulverston and Carlisle. This long-distance footpath passes through several popular towns like Keswick, as well as the attractive Borrowdale valleys.
Starting in Ulverston market square, the Cumbria Way heads northwards to the great border city of Carlisle, with daily walking distances of about 12 miles.
We cross the low Southern Fells, with fantastic views back to Morecambe Bay, before arriving at Coniston Water at the end of our first day. Watched over by Coniston Old Man, we'll then ascend to Tarn Hows, as we continue on to the impressive setting of Elter water.
From Dungeon Ghyll in Great Langdale, we take the old packhorse route over Stake Pass, then descend into Borrowdale, where immense rocky crags surround us. We'll amble along the shore of Derwent Water, before skirting the eastern edges of Skiddaw and heading into the grandeur of the wild Northern Fells.
On our final day's walk, we follow the River Caldew through wooded pastures and out of the Lake District National Park towards Carlisle, completing this 75-mile classic trek. We then return to Hassness Country House after a week of excellent hiking and spectacular scenery.
