The 'Wobbly' Walking Programme: This centre is simply one of the finest walking locations anywhere in the country, with Mountains and fells reaching upwards in every direction. By contrast, there are numerous river valleys with tranquil lakes, dancing waterfalls and peaceful woodland, providing wonderful lower level walks.
For the hard walkers there are some truly wonderful high level options Great Gable, Glaramara, Allen Crags, Eagle Crag, Sergeant Crag, High Raise, Ullscarf, Dale Head, Hindscarth and Robinson are all possible walks from the front door of the centre, or it's only a short hop over Honister Pass to a range of walks in the beautiful Buttermere valley. The final choice of walks and routes will be selected closer to the time when the weather and everyone’s ability and previous experiences of Borrowdale have been established.
Meanwhile for the gentler walkers there are some beautiful lower fells that can be reached without too much effort: Castle Crag, Kings How and Bessy Boot are all wonderful viewpoints. Styhead Pass and Sprinkling Tarn lie at the very heart of the most spectacular Mountains in England, and there is also the dramatic scenery of Dale Head Tarn and the Newlands valley. But we must not forget the beautiful Langstrath and Buttermere valleys, and the hidden tea shops in the hamlets of Watendlath, Seathwaite and Rosthwaite, all of which add to the delights of the lower walks.
Remember on each day we will provide a minimum of two walks on each day, so you can choose how you are feeling on the day and select the walk that suits you best! These walks will be led by professional and knowledgeable walking guides. On both days there will be a harder walk of 10 or more miles with 1500+ft of ascent, and a gentler walk of 6-9 miles with less ascent. All walks are weather dependent and own transport may be taken to the walk starts.
