24th September 2013Special guest blog: Remembering Summer days at Ennerdale & St Bees by Blaize Davies

With the arrival of the cool September air I found myself thinking back to my Summer stay in the Western Lake District.

Myself and friends had been planning a walking holiday together for some time and we had talked about a number of different options, one of which being the Coast to Coast, but I must confess that I was looking more for relaxation than endurance and so this is when we discovered Ennerdale.

6th September 2013Tour of Britain 2013 Stage Two: What’s en-route in the Western Lake District?

The Tour of Britain 2013, Stage 2, comes to Cumbria and The Lake District on Monday 16th September. And what’s really rather exciting for me, is the fact that the route whizzes through some of the best of the Western Lake District. I hope that Sir Bradley Wiggins, Chris Froome and company realise that they’ll be treated to a glimpse of some of my favourite places and views… just in case they don’t (and I’m sure they’re reading this) here are just a few.

Just as some beauty spots in the Western Lake District are great because of their remoteness, others are just as wonderful because they are only a stone's throw from civilisation.
