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 200 metres. 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.
