In the words of Alfred Wainwright writing about his beloved Lake District:

“Oh, how can I put into words the joys of a walk over country such as this; the scenes that delight the eyes, the blessed peace of mind, the sheer exuberance which fills your soul as you tread the firm turf? This is something to be lived, not read about.”

We are passionate about this beautiful region, which has so much to offer and look forward to sharing it with you.
