Walking is THE thing to do in the Lake District, and the Cumbria Way is the path through the thick of it. I've been told that it is the least developed way to see the area without too many tourist buses to work around. It starts in Ulverston on the south end and ends in Carlisle on the north end...

Fantastic scenery of an exciting journey. Our first day was wet, but the welcome at Yewdale Inn was warm! Second day took us into the mountains then a second night in Coniston. Over into Langdale next, incredible, breathtaking scenery then wonderful home cooked food and great beer at Old Dungeon Ghyll. A second day in Langdale took us up Bowfell.... More

Fab walk along a stretch of the Cumbrian way. Beautiful scenery. Plenty to look at and enjoy. Dog had a fab time in the grass and leaves.

I walked this in a balmy, September , Indian summer with my South African brother.. The weather was very good to us and most of our over night stays were excellent.. However we noticed a distinct lack of way-marking in the opening stage to Coniston and into Caldbeck from Skiddaw House... We did not walk the last stage to Carlisle... More

We did this walk from Ulverston to Caldbeck, skipping the last leg and instead spending a day in Keswick. We booked through Wandering Aengus which supplied us with maps and guidebooks and luggage transport. All of the accommodations they picked for us were top notch. Be prepared to walk with the map and guidebook in your hand and actually use... More

We found a car park next to the start of the Cumbrian Way in Ulverston and had a stroll. Beautiful countryside and a nice walk along the footpath. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

My mum and I did this as part of a longer walk in the Langdales and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The views are fabulous particularly on a warm, clear sunny day. Certainly worth a visit.

We have just returned from completing The Cumbrian Way and found it to be a lovely 73 mile long distance walk. We started in Ulverston staying in Coniston, Great Langdale, Keswick, Caldbeck and finishing in Carlisle. We were pleased that we had a Cicerone Guide and a Harvey's Map of The Cumbrian Way or we would have been well and... More

Brilliant walking and climbing.....but once you leave the Lake District it is a bit boring.....my advice stop at Keswick walk around the lake 8 miles.....bus takes you straight to Carlisle.

Step back in time and hike paths through working farms. Making sure to wear closed shoes because there is lots of sheep droppings to avoid, a great way to view the magnificence of the countryside and fresh air that surrounds Ulverston, if you are lucky enough to pass by or catch up to a local, many are more than willing...
