Views ‘n’ Booze Weekend

Our ‘Views ‘n’ Booze’ weekend break is both active and sociable. The weekend is flexible depending on the make up of the party and the weather but a typical weekend will look like this.

Friday Evening: An introduction meet and chat about the following 2 days walks.

Saturday: Meet at the Herdwick Inn at 9am for a tea/coffee before heading off for the day’s walk (Blencathra will definitely be one of the options). In the tradition of the great guide book writer Alfred Wainwright we may take the short bus trip to Threlkeld!

Saturday Evening: After a meal we will have a pub quiz and maybe a few beers!

Sunday: The second walk will be in the lesser visited fells to the north of Skiddaw with a visit to Bowscale Tarn included.

The weekend is very enjoyable, great fun and very sociable. Meet a number of  like minded walkers and have a drink…what could be better.
