Walks from the Cottage

Whilst many of our guests are seasoned walkers and know the area well, we have put a few walks together that can be done from the cottage door without taking the car. In addition we have included a walk from Ambleside and a great family walk from Windermere.

The Lake District can be very wet and muddy so always wear suitable footwear and take a waterproof. The weather can change very quickly we recommend you check the forecast at the Lake District Weatherline. http://www.lakedistrictweatherline.co.uk before venturing out

Don’t venture on the fells above the cloud line or in mist unless you are competent with a map and compass.
