A guide to hiking in the Lake District

Alfred Wainwright, the famous writer, has been a long advocate of the Lake District. He was also known as a fell walker, and often did a lot of hiking in the area. One of his most legendary guidebooks is the Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells.

His guide has recently been featured in a television programme by the BBC which has made it much more popular and it has also been long popular because it has been regarded as the standard for creating a good guide to walking breaks in the UK.

If you are looking for a place to stay in the Lake District, where you can base yourself for some hiking, then you should really consider staying at Hassness House. This is an incredible house that is located in a beautiful woodland clearing and enjoys a quiet landscape.
