The scenic Westmorland Way is a 95 mile walk through the old county of that name, which now forms the south eastern part of Cumbria.
The route starts in Appleby, the county town of Westmorland, the perfect starting point in the shadow of the Pennine Chain. It then travels west and generally southwards, winding its way through some of the finest Lake District scenery, passing Ullswater, Grasmere and Windermere, before visiting the market town of Kendal. From there it follows the canal and tracks through woodlands and meadows to Westmorland’s only port, Arnside, on the shores of Morecambe Bay.
We offer 2 holidays on the Westmorland Way. First we have the whole route with a choice of 7, 8 or 9 days walking depending on how far you want to walk each day and how much time you have to look around. The second holiday is a 3 day highlights walk, covering the most dramatic section through the Lake District, from Pooley Bridge to Ambleside.
Please bear in mind that the distances each day are trail distances only. They do not take into account walking to your accommodation. On some days the accommodation might be on or close to the trail but on other days you may need to walk one or two miles to get to your overnight stop.
