Lake District DIY Weekend - Keswick

2019-03-01 20:00:00 2019-03-01 :00 Europe/London Lake District DIY Weekend - Keswick

This is a Lake District DIY weekend based in Keswick. Everyone will need to book their own accommodation and I will arrange walks on the Saturday and Sunday and a meal on Saturday night. Please note that the walks may need to change depending on the weather conditions.

There are plenty of accommodation options in Keswick from youth hostels to B&Bs and hotels.

The basic plan is:

Friday evening: meet for drinks at one of the town  centre pubs.

Saturday: Walk up Catbells and around Derwent Water. Meet at 10 am in front of the Royal Oak Hotel. The walk will take us through Portinscale to Hawes end, up Catbells, down to the lake, we will then head for the Mary Mount hotel, round to the Asheness bridge landing stage and round the lake shore back to Keswick, This is approx. 12 miles but there are a number of opportunities to shorten it by taking a boat back to Keswick from various points after we have descended back to the lake shore.

Saturday evening: I will book a meal for those who are interested and we will visit a few of the local bars and pubs.

Sunday: A shorter walk up Walla Crag and back along the lake, approx. 5 miles.

If you are interested in attending this weekend please e-mail me to I can get an idea of numbers.

For those wanting to be included in the Saturday night meal, I will need confirmation by 8 Feb so I can book a table.
