Nordic Walking in the Lake District

Fun and fitness at Hassness Country House

Learn Nordic Walking with great days out in the Lake District and use your new cross training walking technique to burn more calories than normal walking and generally boost your fitness.

 

After an introduction to Nordic Walking techniques and a little practice of the basics in the grounds of Hassness, we’ll venture out on our first Nordic walk around Buttermere under the careful eye of your instructor. We’ll also have further training walks on the trails in Whinlatter Forest and from Keswick to Castlerigg Stone Circle. This is quite an energetic break so we’ll take time out for a relaxing lunch each day. The use of Nordic Walking poles is included in the holiday price.

 

Whether it be your first experience of Nordic Walking or if you have enjoyed it before, why not take your Nordic Walking steps with us and enjoy the very best of the Lake District’s picturesque paths and views of the high peaks?

  • Accommodation
    Hassness Country House 

    Hassness Country House provides a welcoming and peaceful atmosphere for each and every guest. All our bedrooms have stunning views of the rugged and imposing hillsides across the water. Looking out across the lake on a still and sunny morning from your room is truly a special sight. At Hassness you’ll take a step back from the frantic world beyond the fells.  It’s far enough away yet convenient for the main tourist hubs of Keswick; this is a quieter, less trodden part of the Lake District with dramatic and tranquil scenery. Managers Carole & Brian will make you feel welcome. We know you’ll love it!

    The lounge at Hassness is a delightful place to relax, with a large picture window looking out across the lake. Comfortable and welcoming, it’s a great place to enjoy your own company or that of your fellow guests.

    Accommodation is in very comfortable twin, double and single rooms, all of which have lakeside views. Bathroom facilities are shared but plentiful - there are five modern high powered shower rooms, which cater for a full house of people comfortably. Toiletries are provided together with hairdryers. Towels (both hand & bath) are provided for each guest. Or you could always take a bracing pre-breakfast dip in the lake!

    Hassness House offers a retreat from today’s always connected world. There's no TV, no phones in the rooms, and no mobile reception in this sparsely populated valley of West Cumbria. If you do need to contact the outside world there is a payphone available. There’s no Wi-Fi in the bedrooms, but we do have a Wi-Fi router in the lounge, so if you can’t bear to be completely disconnected during your stay, you can fire up your iPad.
