Steve Watts of Lakeland Walks and Talks is also on hand and available to take visitors and guests out into the hills. Recently he met up with Waterhead guests, Sara and Nassar, from the USA. They had a fantastic day on Steve’s Introduction to the Lakes & Hidden Gems walk.

Steve is happy to meet guests at Waterhead Reception for introductions. The Hidden Gems walk starts and finishes at Rydal Hall, taking in the magnificent grounds, with an explanation of the history of the Hall. The walk then meanders along the Coffin Route to Grasmere, along the shore of Rydal Water to Deerbolts Wood. It then breaks out onto Loughrigg Terrace for one of the most iconic & scenic views in the Lakes. A visit to Rydal Caves before returning to Rydal Hall for a Certificate Presentation. A breath taking & memorable experience in every way.

Sara and Nassar were enthralled by their day in the hills and commented,
So pleased we booked the walk. We have loved every minute and we would never have known any of these Gems existed. Thank you!
