Explore some of the quieter Lake District peaks on this walking holiday to Patterdale, a small village at the southern end of Ullswater. There are many fabulous walks straight from the door and we will be taking in the best the area has to offer. We may head to St Sunday Crag or perhaps High Street – routes will be decided at the time taking in weather conditions, etc. Helvellyn is one of the better known mountains nearby so we may well head over there on one day as it is popular for a reason. Rachel who leads this holiday knows the Lake District really well and will be sure to choose the most inspiring routes.

We stay at the Patterdale Hotel where all meals are provided so you won’t have to think about anything except enjoying the fells. All rooms are the standard Patterdale rooms – an upgrade to a lake view room may be possible for a supplement.
