Walking Break - Day 1

Windermere to Ambleside
The walk for day 1 sets off from Windermere railway station with a short climb to the viewpoint of Orrest Head which gives breathtaking views of the surrounding area.  From there to Troutbeck a sprawling village with whitewashed cottages and gardens just right for Mrs Tiggywinkle and her washing line.  With a couple of pubs and a tearoom Troutbeck is ideal for a refreshment stop.  After which you carry on to Ambleside along an old footpath and again the beautiful views of lakes and fells can be seen all the way. A higher route can be taken over Wansfell and if you would prefer this way let us know when you make your booking. Stay your 1st night at Brathay Lodge
