Mountain Walking at Newlands

Mountain Walking is a great way to exercise but is not the sort of outdoor activity that should be taken lightly. Proper attire, equipment and route planning are included in any mountain walk as well as reference to the weather forecast. We can arrange everything for your group, from a low level wander around the lake to a full day on England’s highest mountains, all very close to Newlands. You will be taken on a guided walk by one of our Instructors who will be able to tell you about many of the things you will see e.g. local mines for the ‘lead’ in the worlds first pencils and the quarries for Kendal Mint Cake.

AW Wainwright who wrote the most popular guide books of the Lake District, said of Newlands: Newlands is a privileged valley, ringed by grand fells.
