The Long Walk: The Ullswater Way with Knobs On

Book Here

We have booked 15 beds at the George Starkey Hut in Patterdale (NY395161). Gender segregated bunkrooms (5 female, 10 male). More places may be available – contact Michael Smith if more are needed – do not be put off by the online booking showing it as FULL.

Meals available are breakfasts and a simple meal on Saturday evening. Bring your own hill food and any drinks you need. Twenty-minute walk to the pub in Glenridding.

The Ullswater Way can be tackled in a day as a whole or just one of its sections. Extended to avoid the lakeside bit it makes a longer day or can be taken over two or three days with variations. The shortest possible route is 3 miles, 10 miles if you use the steamer, 20 miles for the Ullswater Way itself, 29 miles with the suggested ‘knobs’ on and infinitely extendable. Tackle it as you wish – something for everyone. All is described in the meets downloadable sheet complete with the routes outlined.
