‘Where 2 Walk’

Seasons greetings from Colwith! I hope everyone is enjoying the festive period. Looking ahead, there’s no better way of overcoming the Christmas indulgences than a walking break in the Lakes. Don’t let the cold put you off – Winter and early Spring can provide some of the most magical Lake District experiences. Take advantage of the wide, cold blue skies, snow-capped mountain scenery, frozen lakes, snowdrop woods and the first tentative signs of Spring (not to mention the quieter season) this January, February and March.

To help you plan your perfect break in the New Year, we’d like to direct readers’ attention to www.where2walk.co.uk - a great directory of some of the best walks in the area, including several of varying lengths and difficulties around the Langdales. The site provides photos, description and a map of each walk, and information about the difficulty level and any particularly challenging stretches.

Where2Walk also offers an exciting service which plans a bespoke walking holiday for your group. They can provide you with an itinerary that suits the ability level of your party, and shows you the things you’d like to see the most on your Lake District break, as well as supplying maps and even a guide if needed. With Colwith as a base in the heart of the Lake District, this could make for the ultimate memorable walking holiday. Click here for more details.

If you’ve visited Colwith before but like the sound of exploring the Lakes on foot further, this might be your lucky day, as Colwith is currently offering a 10% discount to past guests on any full week booking throughout 2013, if you book before 31st January. Just quote the reference ‘guest’ when enquiring about a booking.

Wherever you are this Christmas, enjoy yourself, and enjoy the great outdoors!
