What we're about
Upcoming events (1)
We have the best scenic surroundings in the UK which individuals would like to explore but struggle to find the time to actually get out there. Does this sound familiar, "I'd love to climb Scafell one day" "its on my list but I just cannot find the time at the moment" or "I can't climb that, it's too much for me", if this sounds like you we'd like you to put all these restrictions in the bin and join our Scafell Pike hike for all levels from beginner to advance. To compliment the hike we are in the process of arranging for a morning yoga/fitness class to help you start the day fresh and balanced. As well as the above we'll be taking a trip on the Ravenglass & Eskdale Steam Railway. The line is seven miles long with a journey time of 40 mins each way offering spectacular views over the estuaries and countryside with England’s highest mountains in the distance.
