Guided walking in The Lake District at it’s magnificent best

Our colleague Alvina Labsvirs has just completed one of our Lake District holidays in the southern Lake District

This was based at Rydal Hall.

Situated between Ambleside and Grasmere, Rydal Hall is the perfect location for a few days in south Lakes.

On arrival we took a leg stretch up the valley between the two prongs of the Fairfield horseshoe.  Quickly gave us a feel for the wildness of the hills, with lovely waterfalls and bluebell woods.


Our first full day we walked the ridge of Silverhowe.  Wonderful views over to Little Langdale and Rydal Water and Grasmere.  Lunch in Grasmere and return by the Coffin route.


Day two was a little misty so we stayed low and contoured round Wansfell into Troutbeck.  From there, skirting the softer hills towards our destination of Orrest Head.  This is where Wainwright fell in love with the Lake District Hills – fantastic  views over Winderemere.


Day three – Followed the western shore of Grasmere.  Through the village and a gradual ascent up the magnificent waterfalls on Easedale.  Wide open bowl at the top with Easedale tarn… lunch stop.  Returned by Far Easedale.  Tea and cake in Grasmere before our return walk back to Rydal.


Last Day – a meander around Loughrigg with its various peaks and troughs.  Views of the places we’d visited.  We were able to pick out the tracks and see over Windermere, and even the waterfalls of Easedale.


With its central position, Rydal Hall makes just the right spot to venture into the Southern Lakes. There are so many walks to choose form too.
