Lake District, Borrowdale Valley and Derwentwater Grade: Low Moderate
The Borrowdale Valley is reputed to be the most beautiful valley in England. Running from the shores of Derwentwater to the Honister Pass, there is much to admire along the way. Surrounded by imposing high peaks, we will explore the lower reaches of the valley on this low moderate guided walking holiday.
We will head towards Castle Crags with fine views along the way over the valley towards th e surrounding peaks. On one day we will explore the shores of Derwentwater and pop up to the lower reaches of Cat Bells for wonderful, panoramic views. We will also follow stunning Langstrath valley up towards the higher reaches of the area – there is high drama to be had even at these lower levels. And we may also head upwards to hidden gem of Watendlath and on to Dock Tarn for a sense of remoteness and wonder.
We will be staying at the Glaramara Hotel which has been transformed over the last few years into an extremely comfortable hotel with an excellent menu and bar. The 3 course evening meals are particularly good and something to savour after a day of walking. The holiday is full board so once you’re there you will spend very little.
Please note that there is a moderate to challenging holiday at the same time and you can opt to change between the two grades each day should you wish.
