For this Easter Bank Holiday trip we will depart from London on Thursday evening and head to Ambleside in Cumbria. Car sharing will be available for those that need it and options will be announced nearer the time (please indicate this as a requirement when booking your ticket). You are welcome to make your own way to the accommodation if you prefer.
Our sole occupancy, exclusive hire accommodation is Eagle Crag Bunk House, ideally located for our hikes and local attractions – and situated on the Brathay Estate in beautiful woodland settings. Lake Windermere is a stone’s throw away, and the fells are on our doorstep.
The accommodation is spacious, with a dining area and plenty of seating areas as well as a games room. There is a TV room located in the building with bean bags and comfy chairs, and the bunkhouse is fully centrally heated. There are showers and toilets, a large dining room, a fully equipped kitchen with a large oven and hob, microwave, fridge and freezer. There is also a kitchenette with a hot water boiler, sink and fridge. The sleeping accommodation is 4 bedded dorms with a couple of twin room options, but please bring own sleeping bags, pillows and towels. If you are self-catering, you will need to bring your own food for breakfasts, dinners and packed lunches – alternatively Ambleside, a brisk walk away, has lots of great eateries, supermarkets and shops. There is an option to have a locally cooked breakfast.
During this Bank Holiday weekend we will walk to many spectacular areas and locations – our walks will be planned each day from one of the following:
Helvellyn – 950m (third highest mountain in England)
Loughrigg Fell & Rydal Water – 335m
Fairfield Horseshoe (includes 8 Wainwrights!)
Red Screes – 776m & Scandale Fell
Ambleside to Grasmere Low Level Walk
The Langdales & Tarns – 736m
After Monday’s walk, we will return to the vehicles and depart back to London – you can expect to be back in London by about 7-8 pm Monday evening.
