Autumn is a beautiful time to visit the Lake District, and despite not being the most popular season for tourism, there is still plenty to see and do. We have a fantastic Autumn Offer on our rooms and to make a stay with us even more tempting, here’s a fantastic selection of what’s on in the area this Autumn.
Visiting the Lake District for the first time? Or perhaps you want to ‘get out there’ but you’re not comfortable navigating across the countryside? Not to worry! The Lake District National Park are great at arranging guided walks, many of which are free. There are walks arranged throughout the Autumn each graded easy, moderate or hard so you can pick a walk that is suitable to your abilities. Coming up this October, there is a ‘very hard’ guided walk to the summit of Blencathra from Scales Fell, this will bag three of Wainwrights summits in one! Alternately, if that sounds a bit on the extreme side, there is an ‘easy family walk’ above Derwent Water that passes through Great Wood to Ashness Bridge and the lake shore. The perfect walk for enjoying the stunning Autumn colours of the season. If you’d like to view more guided walks visit: https://bit.ly/2Ogpzhi
