/ recommend a walk in Lake District
Route needs to be flat as one lady coming along is pregnant.
You could do a lot worse than a stroll up Eskdale as far as the packhorse bridge.
Thanks for suggestions. Reasons why they're nice walks would be nice so :-)
well everyone is different!
Ferry from Glenridding to Pooley Bridge. Then south along tracks and a little bit of road to Howtown; from there to Patterdale it's all paths.
Or get off at Howtown and do just the lower bit.
Depending on the time of year many of the campsites have small shop/cafes for refreshments and toilets.
The ferry bit is a nice start.
Walk around the side of ullswater underneath place fell, ferry back
Walk up to Kentmere reservoir, can either be from Stevely or Kentmere church or anywhere in between depending on required length, generally pretty quiet
Walk around little langdale, hodge close, elterwater etc, small hills but great views but definatly on the beaten track :)
Walking up Langstrathe at the bottom of Borrowdale following the cumbria way is really nice and often deserted, you would have to go out and back the same way though unless you like river crossings?
Hope this helps a little :)
One I can recommend that gives a big hill feel with great views that is easily accessible, and has been done by a pregnant friend -
Start point. Grasmere heading SW out of the village towards St Oswalds,
Gentle climb to skirt Silver How and follow the blunt ridge SE towards High Close.
Short road section heading down NE to pick up the Loughrigg Terrace path.
Round Rydal Water to emerge at Glen Rothay Hotel (Badger Bar for a swift one)
North Up Keena Close picking up the footpath West though Nab wood and High Wood back to Grasmere centre for tea, medals and gingerbread.
The route is easy going and there are lots of escape routes to make it shorter if required.
One of my favourites though it may be a bit long for a pregnant lady, is the coffin route from Rydal to Grasmere and back via the lake and Loughrigg Terrace.
