What we're about

we are a friendly and successful outdoor adventure and social group. although the group has been well established in West London since 1934. we are hoping to extend the many varied experience to the Thames Valley. All our activities are led by experienced walk leaders. Our core programme offers a weekly hike with graded difficulty, up to 20 weekends away each year, regular training, evening walks and social events. We also arrange camping trips, cycling (off road & on) E-Biking, Canoeing and Geocaching.

Lakes, Peaks and Waterfalls

Needs a location

For the extended Jubilee holiday weekend we have booked ensuite dorms at the newly refurbished Ambleside hostel on the shores of Lake Windermere next to the ferry departure quay. Stunning views from the hostel with waterside bar / restaurant.
Thursday - We plan two walks. The first 4 miles, around Tarn Hows Wood. We will then walk to the spectacular Stockgyll Force waterfall just outside Ambleside. Plan evening meal in Ambleside.
Friday - We plan a walk of around 10 miles starting from the hostel along the breathtaking Fairfield Horseshoe Walk with a climb to the peak (950m height). Great views of the lakes. We will end the walk with tea and tiffin back near the hostel. Evening entertainment in town.
Saturday - We plan a low level walk again from the hostel on a Wordsworth themed walk around Rydal and Grasmere lakes of around 6 miles with tea and tiffin at the end near the hostel.
Sunday - We plan to catch a ferry from outside the hostel to Ashness and an easy 4 mile walk to the Beatrix Potter village, museum and tea shops.
Cost is £105pp in shared dorms please message for availability.
