In our first year many guests asked about our Goat Grading. We also had women who had lost confidence in hiking after Covid, or others who asked for a little help in identifying their fitness level. We have introduced ‘ Get Goat Fit ‘ with more advice and tips on our website plus a series of day walks/short events to help get and stay fit. This one right in the heart of the Lake District.
Dates: Friday 4th August to Monday 7th August.
If you only have a weekend do get in touch as we can discount the price for a 2 day break to £492
