Our venue for the weekend rests in a tiny hamlet between Brothers Water and Ullswater in the North Western Lakes and is the perfect spot for a weekend of fell walking. This is a new venue for us but is set to become an annual fixture. 

For the walkers: from the door we could include routes over the iconic Fairfield and St Sunday Crag or on the other side of the valley onto High Street - a stunning ridge that goes for miles.  Five minutes walk from the hostel is Brothers Water - a charming little lake that takes about half an hour to walk around, adding a stop at the local pub half way around if that appeals.  A five minute bus ride takes you to Patterdale from where Helvellyn is possible (including Striding Edge if weather permits).

If the high fells don't appeal (or the weather is bad) and you fancied a lower level walk, taking the Ullswater Steamer to Howtown and walking back along the lake shore is another delightful day out. 

A great pub is a ten minute walk away so this event really does have it all!

This venue is fully accessible by public transport - being roughly one hour's direct bus ride from both Penrith and Windermere train stations.
