Best Western Shap Wells Hotel
Quality accommodation in a secluded valley.

Number of nights - 2. Cost - £159 per person.




High in the Cumbrian Fells, our countryside setting ensures peace and quiet, and is the perfect place from which to hike and explore in the Lake District. The hotel itself offers the highest standards, without taking itself too seriously. The friendly staff create a warm, relaxing, family run environment, where nothing is too much trouble.

The mood for your stay is set even before you check-in, with a mile-long drive along a private road with breathtaking, rugged scenery in every direction. A pretty waterfall and trickling stream running by the front door will leave you with no doubts in your mind that this is a wonderful place in which to get away from it all!



The Lake District National Park offers the finest hiking in England (there are even red squirrels in the hotel grounds) and there is plenty of opportunity for outdoor adventure in this superb region.

Don't miss this weekend away!smile




Price includes:

  • 2 nights hotel accommodation in twin share rooms (double room for couples) or private room (there is an extra charge for single occupancy)
  • 2 cooked breakfasts 2 delicious (three course) evening meals
  • A choice of guided hikes by trained Mountain Leaders (MLTE) and qualified first aiders
  • Financial protection in accordance with the Package Travel Law 1992

      Hi Nick, Thanks for sharing the link for Day 1 and Day 2. Whilst I could see the map and the distance traveled in Day 2, I can't see the map in Day 1. But nevertheless they are helpful :)
