The Lake District is a wonderful area of England for walking and we aim to bring you more uncovered spots to walk without crowds. This autumn we have added Skelwith Bridge near Ambleside - a beautiful spot at the end of the Langdale Valley. Alvina our local guide has some great walks planned so do join us. It is also the perfect opportunity to get some photographic tips from her as she is currently studying photography at Chester University.

Base: Skelwith Bridge Hotel, Near Ambleside, Lake District. Dating back to the 17th century this former farmhouse, corn mill and hostelry, has been lovingly converted and extended into the comfortable hotel it is today, but it still retains many of the original features and character. The great thing is it is away from the hustle and bustle of Ambleside but near enough if you would like to visit.

This is a beautiful area at the end of the Langdale Valley in the Lake District. In a peaceful spot only 2.6 miles from Ambleside with it’s Lake District charm and many cafes,restaurants and shops full of local produce.
We choose Skelwith Bridge for its peace and tranquillity and the fact that you can walk in high fells or low valleys and right from the door of the hotel. Your local guide will take the middle paths to give you a flavour of the lovely Lake District and experience all the joys of hill walking. You will require a modicum of hill fitness but you certainly won’t be walking up hill all day. The area is full of very varied walks.
