England's north Country is famous for the beauty of its scenery. Here you will find the stunning lake and mountain scenery of the Lake District, the rich green valleys and dry-stone walls of the Yorkshire Dales and the rolling heather moorland of the North York Moors. It is perfect hiking country. Our new Lake District Walk and our well-loved Coast to Coast Adventure through the lakes and dales to the sea are the best way to see and experience this timeless region this fall.

England's must-see lakeland

The Lake District is England's largest National Park and is home to Scafell Pike - the nation’s highest mountain, Wastwater - its deepest lake and thriving communities like Keswick and Bowness-on-Windermere. From ambles around lakes to high ridge walks, with a bit of scrambling, the picturesque patchwork of lakes, valleys, woodlands and fells make it one of the best places in Britain to get out and experience the great outdoors. The romance of the English Lakes that has inspired poets and painters is laid out before us on our Walk, which takes us from high fells to gorgeous lakeside towns. Hiking in the Lake District National Park, we ascend by mountain trails to discover summits with awe-inspiring views. Highlights include a ride in a steam train, a gentle cruise in a renovated Victorian steam yacht across the sparkling lakes, and an insight into the facts and myths of a Druid stone circle. We stay in a hotel which was once owned by Beatrix Potter and visit John Ruskin’s final home. North Country Walking Vacations in England with The Wayfarers

Ocean to ocean across England

For an unforgettable experience, why not and come Coast to Coast with us? Across hills and dales, lakes and moorlands, this challenging and enjoyable Walk from the Irish Sea to the North Sea, from Cumbria to Yorkshire, spans 85 miles of quintessentially English landscape in three National Parks. Following in the footsteps of Charlotte Bronte and William Wordsworth, we discover the wild, unspoiled Lake District and the mountains of Cumbria, pass tranquil lakes and climb by craggy tarns. In Yorkshire we encounter pastures and dales, winding rivers and rocky valleys. We explore royal castles and Gothic abbeys, sample local ales and traditional cheeses. Wildlife is the real star of this walk and at any moment on our trip we might spot a grouse or plover, kingfisher or deer. And at journey’s end, we’ll celebrate with a glass of something on the beach at Sandsend, near Whitby.

Both of these are Level 5 Walks, so they’ll be energetic and fun! Our Lake District Walk provides a challenge,with some steep ascents and descents. But don’t worry, for those who prefer gentler alternatives, there is a less arduous option on offer every day. The Coast to Coast covers some 12 to 15 miles each day, and this rates a Level 5 not because of difficult terrain, but due to the number of miles walked in a day. Visit our Lake District for more information about Walk Levels and to see the full itineraries for the Lake District and the Coast to Coast.
