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.

This was our second planned walk with Mickledore the first being the coast to coast. The Dales Way way was just as good. Everything ran as it should with no problems with accommodation or baggage transfer. The staff at Mickledore are polite friendly and knowledgeable, they give you great confidence that you are in safe hands. If you are planning a walking trip then don’t hesitate to use Mickledore they are professional and well on top of their game.

The whole experience worked like clockwork from the first contact onwards, we felt as if we were speaking to friends with wonderful knowledge. Mickledore’s research made the holiday easy to enjoy. Thank you.
