Please ask about our 2013 season which is underway and runs til 30th September. To match up with our new Lake District Circuit, for 2013 the direction of the South Lakes Circuit changes to anti-clockwise. The route starts with the gentle walk up Great Langdale.
This beautiful circular walk leads you over 4 days through the heart of Southern Lakeland. Each day, follow the gentle course to your next destination.
The route is a clever one, though we say so ourselves! It links up the area's classic walking destinations including Grizedale Forest and Great Langdale, as well as the quieter tracks and paths. This region of the Lakes is particularly suited to rambling, or easy walking, thanks to its network of trails and the ever-changing landscape.
Starting in Ambleside and linking up Great Langdale, Coniston and Hawkshead in a logical loop, your pace need never be too high. The terrain is low in comparison to the high Lakeland fells, and the paths underfoot are mostly excellent. A mile of path might take you though woodland, across a field, past a tarn on a wide stony track, and along a country lane.
Your accommodation is in our varied schedule of guesthouses and inns. For your three nights 'on the road' you'll spend two nights in small villages - Coniston and Hawkshead - and one night in a more rural location, the rarified atmosphere of Great Langdale. A friendly guesthouse in Ambleside completes the picture for your first and last nights, letting you get to know this bustling centre of the southern Lakes.
