Lake District hotel guests 'can enjoy lovely walks'
Guests staying in Lake District hotels have been advised to enjoy the many beautiful walks available in the area.
According to Mary Welsh, writing for the Westmorland Gazette, one particularly pleasant stroll is through the meadows of Wasdale Head.
She said: "This mainly low-level walk takes you into the lovely pastures at Wasdale Head, many enclosed by long stretches of fine stone walls."
The walls were built between the 18th and 19th centuries to enclose the sheep and keep the moorland separate.
Ms Welsh added that excess stone, which was gathered into mounds and placed on the land, can still be seen during the ramble.
She advised visitors staying in hotels in the Lake District to walk past the woodlands and head towards the "spectacular falls and cascades", where they can get a "dramatic" view of the mountain called Pillar.
Holidaymakers heading for Wasdale will also be able to catch a glimpse of England's highest mountain Scafell Pike, its deepest lake Wastwater and its smallest church in St Olaf's.
