Crinkle Crags, High Stile, Striding Edge, Helvellyn, Haystacks…the evocative names run through your head as you look forward to another day on your hiking adventure. There is an array of different routes and trails to push yourself through on Lake District walking holidays, but there’s also plenty of time to put your feet up and unwind, too. So, when you’re rested and ready, embark on another spectacular route, advised by your friendly and knowledgeable Ramblers’ Walking Guide, who will lead you every step of the way.
Stunning, inspiring vistas await you here, as England’s highest mountains tower over its deepest, longest lakes, while picturesque stone-built villages, farms and country inns shelter in the valleys. Exhilaration courses through you as you reach for the top of the rugged peaks, which plunge down to meet their reflections in the lakes. As your walk nears to an end, you’ll look forward to returning to Hassness House - a haven of hospitality. Enjoy a massage, hot shower and gourmet evening meal here, aiming to soothe your aches away. You can still admire the scenic views while resting your legs, too, as the stunning Innominate Tarn sits just outside.
Perhaps something a little less strenuous? Revel in a stroll around the shores of Buttermere, located outside the front door of Hassness House, in the company of native Herdwick sheep and red squirrels. Then, head back for afternoon tea, home-made cake and a quiet, relaxing hour with a good book.
Why Book a Walking Holiday to the Lake District?
The Lake District is physical evidence that you don’t need to travel the world to experience astounding walking adventures. Perched proudly in the north west, this national park is home to some of the best walking routes in England and beyond. Whichever trail you opt for, you’ll be treated to staggering views and unrivalled natural beauty.
There are walks of all difficulty levels here, ranging from grade three to grade eight, so you don’t necessarily have to be an experienced walker to enjoy the scenic views. A light stroll through the Lakeland area is more than enough for many, with stops at some of the quaint local villages dotted along the way. However, if you are looking for a challenge, take on one of our Great Lakeland Ridge Walks and reap the rewards of the Lake District’s astonishing mountainscape scenery.
Everyone should have the pleasure of walking in the Lake District, and there is walking to suit everyone in this glorious place.
