Walking holidays at Bawd Hall

Bawd Hall is the ideal base for a walking holiday. There is no need even to drive to your starting point (and find car parking) as there are so many walks to be had starting at the house:

  • great walks straight from the door, from a gentle stroll by the beck to an all-day hike around the "Newlands Round" ;
  • four bathrooms, all with a choice of bath or shower, to clean up and refresh afterwards;
  • plenty of space for boots and coats
  • large lounge and garden room to gather in and share the experience;
  • utility room equipped with washing machine, plus a large drying room with a tumble dryer;
  • central heating throughout (and an open fire if you want it);
  • maps, books and internet access to plan your activities.

For more information, see the walking section of “Your Stay”.

The Lake District offers the finest walking in England, from lakeside strolls to mountain marathons. Some of our favourite local walks are:

  • Causey Pike and the ridge to Crag Hill;
  • extend this to do the "Coledale Round" over Hopegill Head and Grisedale Pike (or do those from Whinlatter);
  • stroll along the side of Derwent Water and take the boat around the lake or into Keswick;
  • Maiden Moor, Hindscarth and Robinson – super ridge walking (you can see this from the house);
  • Aikin Knott, Ard Crags and Knott Rigg (another fine ridge just out of the door);
  • add the last two together for a super but very full round walk from the house;
  • walk around Buttermere – tranquil and with excellent pubs;
  • not forgetting Catbells with its lovely views of Derwent Water.

Sit in the garden and plan your walk by eye. Or you can drive a short distance to climb Skiddaw, Blencathra, Great Gable or Scafell Pike among many others.
