GUIDED TOURS

Are you looking for something less adventurous? Do you want to explore the sights of the Lake District, Eden Valley or Hadrian’s Wall? Why not have a Blue Badge Tourist Guide show you hidden gems and tell you stories about the many special places to visit in Cumbria? Eden Outdoor Adventures can organise a half or full day or short tour to suit you and help you get the most from your time in the area.

Let Melanie take you on a tour of the beautiful Ullswater Valley to discover its fascinating past and present, including history, industry and farming. 

Explore Keswick and the Borrowdale valley. Take a valley walk or moderate fell walk and stop at a great café on the way back. Or discover the many inspirations for some of Beatrix Potter’s books as well as finding out about the many other famous people who made Keswick their home.  For a special Beatrix Potter experience come with us by canoe to visit the island where Old Brown lived in the Tale of Squirrel Nutkin and view the Potter family holiday houses from the lake, before landing at Hawse End and exploring on foot many of the locations found in The Tale of Mrs Tiggywinkle. Join us and Discover Beatrix Potter's Borrowdale.

Grasmere is famous as the home of William Wordsworth. Explore his homes (Dove Cottage and Allan Bank are open to the public) and haunts and find out what else this picturesque Lakeland village has to offer, including the fascinating church and Sarah Nelson’s Grasmere Gingerbread shop. Take a low level walk round the area to see some of the many sites, walking in the footsteps of Wordsworth or take a tour of the village area to learn more about its past and present.  If you have a day to spare then it is possible to walk from Grasmere along Loughrigg Terrace or near the shore of Grasmere to Rydal.  Here you can visit Rydal Church, Dora's field and Rydal Mount (the last house of William Wordsworth), or walk in the gardens of Rydal Hall and enjoy lunch or tea and scones in their cafe.  Afterwards we return to Grasmere via the Corpse road - the old path used to carry coffins from Rydal to Grasmere for burial.  Both routes have beautiful views of Grasmere itself and the surrounding fells and this walk makes a lovely day out.  A one way journey would be an option, using a public service bus for part of the trip. Join us for the Wordsworth Grasmere walk.

Take a walking tour of Hawkshead where William Wordsworth went to school and Beatrix Potter’s husband had his office. Then take a walk or make the journey to Hilltop, Near Sawrey, Beatrix Potter’s most famous property and see the house nearby where she actually lived, plus some of the places that gave inspiration for the illustrations in her books.  Alternatively you can leave your car in Hawkshead and get the bus up to Hill Top and after exploring the cottage and gardens, have a walk round the village looking at sites for illustrations in the little books and then return to Hawkshead on foot via Moss Eccles tarn - a favourite place of Mr and Mrs Heelis - and a walk with beautiful views across Windermere and the surrounding fells, via Claife Heights (approx 5 km, 3 miles easy walking). (Alternatively you can make both journeys by public bus). Join us to Discover Beatrix Potters Hawkshead and Sawrey

Discover the history of Coniston, from its industrial heritage to the famous people who lived in and visited the area. Visit the home of John Ruskin, or learn about the speed record attempts by Donald Campbell.  Walk through Monk Coniston estate to Tarn Hows and back to Coniston or take a walk up the Coppermines Valley or on the old railway line to learn about the industrial history. Join us to Discover Coniston.

Explore the hidden gems of Penrith, the Eden Valley and Northern Pennines - from stone circles to churches and castles to historic market towns and villages and restored industrial sites, taking in a visit to a good café en route if you wish to! Walking tours are available for Ullswater area and also Penrith and Alston and rural villages on the North Pennines.  If you have a specific walk in mind, then please ask! Join us to Discover the Eden Valley.

Why not make the short journey north to visit the world famous Hadrian’s Wall? Walk along part of the Wall and hear about what it was like to live on the Wall in Roman times.  Visit one of the forts or museums to see what is left behind today and the fascinating finds from excavations! Walks can be combined with public transport to make a linear journey and can be for a day or more. Join us to Experience Hadrian's Wall.

It is possible to combine a tour with time spent canoeing on a lake or walking over one of the lower fells. You could even travel on a boat or steam train as part of your journey. For example, you could paddle a canoe from Glenridding to Howtown on Ullswater and then spend a few hours discovering the quiet valley of Martindale with its two lovely churches and then return to Glenridding on the Steamer to make a day to remember! If you are visiting the area, why not choose a to go out with a Blue Badge Guide and have a special day out?

Let Eden Outdoor Adventures give you a great day discovering more about the Lake District, Eden Valley and the Northern Pennines. If you have somewhere in mind to visit that is not mentioned here then ask us and we will be happy to help!  We look forward to seeing you in Cumbria and to making your visit one to remember.
