Lace up those boots

Whether it’s rambling along flower-edged pathways or hiking up craggy fells, there is no simpler way to enjoy our ravishing countryside than on a walking holiday. There are opportunities to take the family and a picnic and explore interesting spots such as quarries and Roman forts. Pause to absorb the majesty of sweeping vistas and mountainous skylines. Don a pair of hiking boots and grab a bar of Kendal mint cake ready for a more challenging climb, interspersed with a well-deserved glass of something refreshing at a perfectly placed watering hole.
