Car based walk suitable for new walkers, with Chris Wareing.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details of the walk start.
Starting from Ambleside, we'll walk out to Rydal Hall and Wordsworth's cottage, along the side of Rydal Water and Grasmere into Grasmere village itself for a tea shop and some of the famous gingerbread, before walking back to Ambleside over Loughrigg Fell, one of Alfred Wainwright's 214 lakeland hills. This walk samples the Lake District at its most scenic and beautiful.
Meet & Travel arrangements - Car Sharing
