Jennings Adventure Ale Trails


After a nights rest in the Borrowdale Valley (at either the Borrowdale Hotel or the Lodore Falls Hotel) step out into a landscape of inspirational, beautiful views. The first day consists of a warm up through a delightful mixture of woodland, crag and beck, up the flanks of Borrowdale and then gets into stride with a high level, view-filled walk over the unassuming peaks of High Seat and High Tove to the Kings Head at Thirlspot.

Before setting off please make sure you plot the suggested route on OS maps and pack a compass. They are essential for a safe, enjoyable day in the hills!
