A great area to learn North Lakes

The Northern Lakes provide some of the best area to learn navigation skills. Away from the main tracks there is some challenging country with featureless land. However it is still a lovely landscape with stunning views.

Herdwick Inn, Penruddock

The navigation weekend is held in the Herdwick Inn, a traditional Lake District pub between Penrith and Keswick.

There are 6 bedrooms available at the Herdwick Inn, let us know if you would like to book one of them.
