“So many lakes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

All the lakes and mountains are within a short drive of each other and each one is quite different. If you want to feel away from it all visit Ennerdale or Wastwater.These are good places for the serious hiker.
Keswick on Lake Derwentwater has plenty of shops and for those who only want a short walk go to the lakeside and walk to the stunning view point of Griars Cragg.

“Grisedale to Hopegill Head”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

It took us two days to find the access gate to the direct route to Grisedale Pike, tucked into a bungle of forest roads in the Revelyn Moss Parking area at Whinlatter Forest Park. But what a delight when we finally managed the summit on a day of moderate winds and open skies. Then another climb to Hopegill Head for fabulous views of lakes and seas. Return trip down to Braithwaite brought the rewards of a refreshing drink at the Royal Oak.

“Newlands Valley and Buttermere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2012

We did two walks - the first in the Newlands Valley and the following day round Buttermere Lake. They were both good locations and suitable for all grades of walks to suit everyone. There is a bus which goes from outside the hotel to Buttermere on which you can use your travel pass if you have one after 9.30a.m.

“Ullscarf”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2012

Our final Wainwright for the Central Fells and even though it was cloudy, the views were spectacular. Luckily it had been dry so we didn't have the "soft going" that is familiar in this area.
