Moderate Walks

Sunday (11km, 350m of ascent)

We will hike around the western shore of the lake where we will get stunning views across the water and of the surrounding Coniston hills.  There is then a short uphill section to reach Kelly Hall Tarn which is a fabulous spot for photos and to explore.  We then head back over to Coniston Water for a short Ferry ride (not included in the price) across to Brantwood the famous home of Ruskin.  Then its a short walk back to Lanehead.

Monday (11km, 450m of ascent)

Our final hike of the weekend will take us exploring the beautiful forest of Grizedale.  It has some gorgeous forest trails and views over Coniston Water and towards Windermere.  Also, if we have time we will aim to visit the famous and picturesque village of Hawkshead, with its lovely pubs and tea shops.

Note: These walks are moderate walks by Lake District Standards of about 11km (7.5 miles) each day. However, as it is the Lake District, there may still be steep and rocky sections and possibly wet and boggy sections. Therefore a good level of fitness is required and boots are strongly advised.  All of our weekends are aimed at people who have a good level of hiking and general fitness.

Yoga

We have a dedicated room for our yoga practice with views out over the gardens to the Lake and mountains.

You will be able to attend 6 classes during this break.

Yoga classes will be mixed ability catering for beginners through to experienced practitioners.  Choices will be offered for your practice.

Yoga sessions will generally take place before breakfast and after we return from our walk. The general focus of the morning sessions will be to energise and warm up the body for our hike, and in the evening, will be to stretch out those tired muscles and relax the body and calm the mind. Yoga and hiking are a great combination, and everyone leaves feeling rejuvenated and re-energised.

A number of mats will be provided for your use but feel free to bring your own mat if you prefer.

Any queries regarding the yoga sessions, please contact us.
