Designed as a scenic tour of the Lake District, this seven day circular route (93 miles) is primarily one of valleys and passes, rather than a tick list of peaks attained.

The route starts at the railway terminus at Windermere village. Quickly leaving the crowds behind, it passes through Ambleside, the Langdale valley, Coniston, Dunnerdale, Eskdale, Wasdale, Ennerdale, Buttermere, Newlands Valley, Keswick, Borrowdale, Grasmere then Ullswater, before returning back to Windermere via the Troutbeck valley.

With a flavour of each of the main Lakeland valleys, and time to stop and wonder at their charms, the walk described in this book leads quickly away from the busy tourist centres to the quiet pleasures of the fell country. The shepherds and drovers chose their paths well, logical links from one valley to the next, and many of these ancient ways have been chosen for this walk. All footpaths and bridleways used are on established rights of way.

  • Full route description with OS maps
  • High level alternatives given, including options for Coniston Old Man, Scafell Pike and Helvellyn.
  • Nine short walks from the overnight stops
  • Information on accommodation, facilities and transport for each day stage


Seasons - April to end of October recommended. The main centres are busy during school holidays, so avoid if possible.
Centres - Windermere, Ambleside, Elterwater, Coniston, Eskdale, Wasdale, Buttermere, Keswick, Rosthwaite, Grasmere, Patterdale
Difficulty - Seven-day, 93 mile walk. Visits valleys rather than peaks. Well within the capabilities of the averagely fit walker.
Must See - The landscape, escaping the crowds, traditional events (sheep dog trials, local shows), peak-bagging, local speciality foods, literary heritage walks
