hello welcome

The Lake District, nestled in the heart of Cumbria is an area of outstanding natural beauty and is packed full of adventure. As autumn approaches, the hills are transformed to colourful tones of orange and brown and as the summer crowds head home, the area returns to peace and tranquillity. Exploring the Lakes has never been easier. To really appreciate the lakes, download the new Stagecoach bus App for live bus times, leave your car keys at home and jump onboard a Lakes Connection bus.

his lovely market town, called the Gateway to the Lakes, has a long main street with narrow lanes and yards leading off it, lined with all manner of interesting shops just beckoning to be discovered. There are lots of fine buildings and plenty to see and do to while away a few pleasant hours. If you want brilliant views over the town’s churches, chapels and rows of houses and you’ve got the energy, climb up to Kendal Castle – a short walk from the town centre. It’s now a picturesque ruin, but so worth exploring. Open daily, free entry. And don’t forget to try Kendal Mint Cake. Based on a traditional recipe, this delicious peppermint confection is well known to mountaineers but it’s great anytime.

Elterwater to Dungeon Ghyll

get the re on route 516

Head into the heart of Great Langdale and experience the majesty of this secluded valley. Start/Finish: Bus stop in Elterwater Village Centre Distance: 3.2 miles (5km) return Time: 3 hours Height gain: 50m Grade: Easy Terrain: Well way marked valley bottom track Refreshments: Elterwater, Chapel Style and Dungeon Ghyll/Stickle Barn Maps: OS Landranger 90, OS Explorer OL 6; Harveys’ Superwalker Lakeland Central (1:25 000); British Mountain Maps Lake District (1:40 000). From the Bus stop in the centre of the village walk down the hill and cross the bridge, following signs for Coniston. Just across the bridge, join the obvious path which heads up-river. Follow the trail, keeping the river on your right for a short while. The path leads through some quarries and you will be able to see the luxurious Langdale Hotel & Spa on the other side.

Cross the river and the route will lead you by the Great Langdale Campsite and onwards to Oak Howe. Here the route splits, but keep on the Cumbria Way, following the river and skirting around the base of Oak Howe Needle. The route strays form the river, but returns to cross for one final time, before you meet the road near the New Dungeon Ghyll Hotel. From here you can catch the Rambler back or reverse your route (if you have time). Be sure to visit one of the traditional Cumbrian Inns in the valley bottom before heading home.

This map is for guidance only.

516 A

You will meet a wooden footbridge which crosses the river and takes you up the road, past the Wainwright Inn for a short distance. You can follow this road further to enter the village of Chapel Stile for a break or catch the bus back from outside the School if you prefer. Alternatively pick up the Cumbria Way again, almost straight away, and follow this back down to the river.

Chapel Stile

Always re-plot your route on an OS map before setting off. Langd

Bear right, keeping alongside the River Rothay. Take the footbridge on the left, just before the gate into the meadow and turn right to follow the riverside path. It is narrow and relatively rough here with steep drops off the path. Go through the kissing gate and follow the cobbled path alongside the river. At the head of Grasmere lake is a small weir with another footbridge.

Start/Finish: St. Oswald's church, Grasmere - grid ref: NY337074

You are in the heart of the jaws of Borrowdale, the narrowest part of the valley bounded by Grange Fell and Castle Crag and High Spy, on the other side of the River Derwent. The oak woodlands are beautiful all year round, but spectacular in spring with carpets of bluebells. Autumn brings its own glories when leaves turn red, yellow and orange.

To reach Dove Cottage the A591 must be crossed; the safest place to do this is by the mini roundabout. Follow the lane by Dove Cottage, which forks left up a hill, to join a bridleway. Head along the bridleway following signs for coffin road. 3

This woodland and meadow walk gives access to the beautiful River Rothay.

The track undulates with short, steep sections, but the surface is consistently good. It leads to a small plateau and the impressive Bowderstone.

Take the road from the centre of the village following signs for Ambleside and Dove Cottage.
