For the outdoor adventurers in the Lake District
For the outdoor adventurers in the Lake District- well we have to be one of outdoor capitals of the world. You can go off road driving, mountain biking- we have a new 190 mile cycle route through the county- The Lakes and Dales Loop- clay pigeon shooting, road cycling, walking, climbing, sailing, kayaking…… several fell races, famous cycle races……. such as the annual Fred Whitton event in May that consists of a 112 mile sportive around the Lake District,taking in climbs of Kirkstone, Honister, Newlands, Whinlatter, Hardknott and the Wrynose Passes
Keeping with the ultra crazy activities, in June our first Iron Man event The Lakesman or ultra running event such as the Lakeland 50 or Lakeland 100 and oh you can go wild water swimming if you so wish.
There is the odd lake or two and plenty of activity on and around the lake- sailing, kayaking, wild water swimming and just a sedate cruise
For the more sedate outdoor interest why to go with our local landscape photography Colin Reynolds and learn how to take That Shot using your digital camera
or stroll around many well signposted footpaths using one of guides available in reception. Or go on a pony and trap in Cartmel
And then there is the odd walking routes up mountains, along valleys and around lakes. We have numerous guides and even our own local strolls. We can advise you where to go depending on what you want to do or you can book a guide to take you on one of their routes. You can easily travel by bus and do a walk for example The Langdale or The Coniston Ramber
