NB Glaramara may be able to pick you up from selected trains at Penrith Station; give them a call to see which ones!

Glaramara in Borrowdale is understandably one of our most popular locations and once again it will play host to three days of fantastic walking in the heart of the Lake District, culminating in a New Year's Eve house party!To celebrate the continuous improvements that the centre is always making we have decided to make this New Year House Party a Black-Tie Affair.So donít forget to pack your posh frock or Dickie Bow and remember to have a Happy Christmas ready for a great New Year!

Walking Programme: Quite simply this centre is one of the finest walking locations anywhere in the country, truly immersed in the deep Lakeland valleys and surrounded by majestic mountains and inviting Lakeland fells.From the front door of the centre, there is a massive range of walking to choose from, with something for everyone! There are the towering heights of Great Gable and Scafell Pike, Castle Crag, the beautiful Derwentwater, the superb cafes throughout Borrowdale and some traditional Lakeland hostelries!Simply a superb place for a winter break. By contrast, there are delightful river valleys with tranquil lakes, dancing waterfalls and peaceful woodland, providing enchanting scenery for all levels of walkers.

For the hard walkers, there are some truly wonderful high level options, there is a smorgasbord of temptations with the Gables, Glaramara, Allen Crags, Eagle Crag, Sergeant Crag, High Raise, Ullscarf, Dale Head, Hindscarth and Robinson to name a few. As if thatís not enough itís only a short hop over Honister Pass to a range of walks in the beautiful Buttermere valley.The final choice of walks and routes will be selected closer to the time when the weather and everyoneís ability and previous experiences of Borrowdale have been established.

Meanwhile for the gentler walkers there are some beautiful lower fells that can be reached without too much effort: Castle Crag, Kings How and Bessy Boot are all wonderful viewpoints providing excellent value for your efforts.Styhead Pass and Sprinkling Tarn lie at the very heart of the most spectacular mountains in England, and there is also the dramatic scenery of Dale Head Tarn and the Newlands valley.But we must not forget the beautiful Langstrath and Buttermere valleys, and the hidden tea shops in the hamlets of Watendlath, Seathwaite and Rosthwaite, all of which add to the delights of the lower walks.

To allow you to choose a walk that suits you best, we will provide a minimum of two walks on each day led by professional and knowledgeable walking guides.On both days there will be a harder walk of 10-12 miles with 2500+ft of ascent, and a gentler walk of 6-9 miles with less ascent.However, the programme is flexible and can be altered to suit your needs.All walks are weather dependent and own transport may be taken to the walk starts.
