Vale of Lorton

This is our kindest holiday in one of the quietest areas of the Lake District National Park. It is based around the peaceful lakes of Loweswater, Crummock and Buttermere in the North West corner of the Lake District, and uses well defined paths, forestry tracks and country lanes.

The distances covered each day are relatively short with the exception of one mountain pass involving an easy climb of 200metres. The route generally keeps to relatively flat valley bottoms and there is plenty of time to take it easy, enjoy some spectacular scenery and soak up the tranquility.

A lovely walk, just the right balance of scenery, easy bits, challenging bits, and nice to be off the beaten track. Thank you !

We have no hesitation in recommending Mickledore.The B&Bs we arrived at the end of each day are such a treat! Charming, welcoming and comfortable! Nothing went wrong during our trip – however we were confident and reassured that it would be easy to contact Mickledore to sort anything out if needs be. Thank you! A great time in beautiful Cumbria and Yorkshire.
