We are ideally situated with plenty of walks from the door and ones further afield, up onto the likes of High Street, Askham Fell, The Howgills and the Pennines. We are directly on the Coast to Coast route and the Westmorland Way, making us ideal for an overnight stop over. Travelling from the West you will normally reach our bed and breakfast in Shap on the 5th day, we are the first accommodation stop in Shap which may make all the difference after walking 17 miles and climbing the highest peak of the walk!
We are situated in an ideal location for both enthusiast and novice walkers looking for a shorter walking holiday, there are many famous routes accessible within a short driving distance (including Kidsty pike, Striding edge and high cup nick) and some directly from the door (including the 3 rings of Shap). There are also many smaller and easier, yet just as beautiful, routes close by. We can provide maps and advice on routes if required.

The scenic Westmorland Way is a 95 mile walk through the old county of that name, which now forms the south eastern segment of Cumbria.
A relatively low-level route across the historic county of Westmorland and the Lake District National Park, it follows footpaths, tracks and country lanes along river valleys and across farmland and the open fells via Shap, Pooley Bridge, Patterdale, Grasmere, Troutbeck and Kendal to reach Morecambe Bay.
Please visit The Westmorland Way for more information on the walk, including a virtual map and a comprehensive listing of accommodation along the way.
