Walking in the Lake District

As one of the most beautiful places in the UK, the Lake District is a popular holiday destination for walkers and ramblers. There are routes, paths and trails suitable for all abilities and ages, from short walks around lakes to climbing one of the region’s magnificent high fells!

There’s no better way to explore this remarkable region than on foot. The Lake District is home to an abundance of beauty, wildlife and activities. If you want a taste of what the region has to offer and also want learn about its history then why not join a guided walk led by one of the Lake District National Park’s volunteers? These guided walks range from short, relaxing walks to long distance ambles and are usually free!

Or perhaps you’re with the family or find walking a challenge. Don’t worry; there are many miles of accessible routes through the Lake District to make it easy for those in wheelchairs or with buggies to enjoy this beautiful piece of England.

There are miles and miles of walking routes and trails across the Lake District. So if you’re thinking of walking holiday in the Lake District, where should you stay? Well, unlike traditional bed and breakfasts or hotels, pubs and inns offer walkers accommodation, food and drink and entertainment under one roof.

Many pubs and inns in the Lake District accommodate and understand walkers’ needs and so after a long day out exploring the fells, guests can relax in the pub; perhaps have a soak in the bath and then few pints of local ale with hearty home cooked meal and refreshing night’s sleep so they are ready for the next fantastic day ahead!
