Lovely Place to learn Long Preston

2019 dates now available.

Based near the village of Threlkeld (near Blencathra) in the Northern Lakes these weekends have a choice of walks over 2 days. The group will be accompanied by professional and knowledgeable guides on the walks who will also act as your social leader on quiz night on Saturday.

3 Peaks in 3 Days

Avoid the crowds on Ingleborough

To climb all the Yorkshire 3 Peaks in a day may be too much for many of us. However these superb mountains in the heart of the Dales should not be ignored so join our midweek groups which sensibly only climb one a day.

Guided Walks

The Wainwright Experience



One day walks with an experienced guide in the Blencathra area in the Northern Lake District. April 4th, May 2nd and June 6th.

There are low level walks, higher level walks and a climb of Blencathra.


Dark Skies Yorkshire Dales (21st February)

The Yorkshire Dales are famous for their dark skies. Join us for a night walk on the 21st February around Grimwith Reservoir in the Yorkshire Dales with a local astronomer. Enjoy a fine walk in a spectacular star lit setting.

We will also be available for private guiding days. If you would like to choose your own walk or challenge (or let us choose it for you) then we will help. As professional guides we not only find the best and most interesting route but also in safety. Our local knowledge, anecdotes and company (hopefully!) also add a lot to any walk.

All our courses and guiding days are  suitable for all ages (including accompanied children and well behaved dogs).
