SOUTHERN LAKELAND

Peninsulas, Coast, Lakes and Fells

The glittering expanse of Morecombe Bay is spread out in front of you as you pause for rest on a clifftop path fringed with sea thrift. This is Southern Lakeland rambling at its best.

 

Explore the dramatic scenery and shores of the Cumbrian coast, together with the rolling wooded fells, tranquil tarns and lakeshores of the south western Lake District. Before the coming of the railways, this was the gateway to The Lakes with the route being a guided walk across the sands of Morecambe Bay from Lancaster to Grange-over-Sands on the inner of the Furness Peninsulas. We walk up to the limestone summit of Hampsfell for magnificent views over Morecambe Bay and the southern Fells towards Keswick. There’s an enjoyable scenic train journey across the Kent Channel estuary to Arnside to explore the lovely coastal area around Silverdale as well as climbing ‘The Knott’.

 

Inland we walk the south-eastern Fells around Windermere and Coniston Water with panoramic views over the lakes from the surrounding hills or from the closer viewpoint of a motor launch.

 

We’re based to the south of the Lake District National Park boundary and right on the Morecambe Bay coast at Kents Bank, just along the coast and one stop on the railway line from the genteel but faded Victorian resort of Grange-over-Sands. The Cumbrian Coastal Way runs past the end of the hotel’s gardens.

Please note: Single rooms without supplements are subject to availability.




WALKING GRADES


Full and half day walks at a moderate pace over hilly terrain. Many of these holidays have an element of sightseeing as well. Half day walk will involve about 3 hours or walking, with full day walks having around 5 hours. Expect ascents and descents of up to 600m.

    NO Single Room Supplement for Solo & Single Travellers

    The availability of single rooms is limited, as is the number if single rooms available without supplement.

    If booking online, for holidays advertised with no single room supplement, if you book a place in a twin room you should not assume that this room will be allocated for your sole use.

    We may be able to obtain additional single rooms or allocate a twin room or double room for sole use, however an additional cost may be levied.

    Share a twin room with another solo traveller
    You can often avoid a single supplement if you are willing to share a twin room with another group member of the same sex, as we can accommodate this on most holidays. Sharers are required to adhere to a no-smoking policy and to reasonable norms of behaviour. If we are unable to find you a suitable sharer, we may allocate you a single room at no additional cost.
