This is one of the Saturday activities at our BIG North Christmas Weekend - there are still spaces available, so sign up here.

Join Mark & Michael for this day walk from the hostel to work up an appetite for our Christmas dinner.

We will head over Loughrigg Fell towards Rydal Water where there maybe a chance for a dip for those who are brave enough! Then walk to Rydall Hall, where there maybe the opportunity for cake at the cafe. From there we will make our way towards Grasmere travelling along the old coffin route for more potential cake opportunities (maybe the famous gingerbread cake)! Then back up towards the hostel.

This is a relatively easy 9-10km walk, with no technical skills required. We'll be setting off at 10am too, so not a mega-early start.
