We have had so much interest in our summer lesbian break that we are introducing this new short early summer break at Glaramara. It is a hotel that has been such a favourite of WalkingWomen that we wanted to offer a few holidays here – in the heart of Borrowdale in the wonderful Lake District. For those who want a chance to escape the crowds mid-week for exercise, fresh air and great company.There are so many beautiful walks in the area and our guide Sue will enjoy sharing them with you.
Glaramara is an ideal base with commanding views of the Borrowdale Fells. Beautiful,varied walks on the doorstep and stunning views all around make this an ideal spot. The nearest station is Penrith with connecting bus service to Keswick with an ongoing service to Seatoller just a 29 minute bus ride away. A good summer service. There is plenty of parking at the hotel.
The hotel is so welcoming with relaxing spaces and cosy corners to enjoy a cuppa, a local beer or whatever tipple takes your fancy. The full board menu has tasty local food and plenty of it. An interesting feature is the display of local art adorning the walls – some for sale to support the local artists. En-suite bedrooms give comfort at the end of the day so enjoyed after a good days walking.
In this short break you will have the chance to really experience what this area has to offer and hopefully it will tempt you to return.
Day 1 The first day will be arrival and a chance to settle in. Arrive by 5pm for your welcome briefing with your guide Jo.
