Most people who want to walk on holiday stay in the same place for the week or weekend. They then strike out from a base (usually by car) and then do a series of day walks that they have researched via the web or guide book.
However increasing numbers of walkers are looking for something different. Leave the car at base, walk to different parts of the area, stay in different places, move across country taking in different scenes and enjoy that sense of satisfaction in completing a well laid out plan.
As an example one of our most popular tailor made walks starts in Keswick. 2 nights here gives the chance of either a climb up Skiddaw, a shorter walk over Walla Crag and Surprise View or a simple Derwentwater stroll. From Keswick head to Buttermere via a high or low route . A couple of days in Buttermere offers endless walking opportunities including the classic circuit of the lake and a visit to Haystacks, a mountain loved by Wainwright.
Keswick is a town, Buttermere barely a village before crossing Honister pass to your third port of call, Upper Borrowdale – all very different places to stay and adding to the enjoyment of the break . In Borrowdale the walking options are endless and include the possibility of climbing the highest mountain in England, Scafell Pike. Easier walks though are all around you and the pleasure comes from being in the heart of the mountains and staying in traditional Lakeland pubs. Back to Keswick via Catbells completes a popular week full of variety.
We arrange self guided walking breaks in the Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors & the Lake District.
