Darnford Walk footpath

Our week hiking through the Lake District on your Mountains tour was the best week of the three we spent in England. The weather was better than we expected and all the accommodations were comfortable. We had no problem navigating using your instructions and the maps… We did find the route quite challenging… We…felt very accomplished at completing it. …everything went so smoothly…This was perfect for us to see as much of the Lake district in a relaxed fashion, as it should be seen, solely on foot….Thank you – I would not hesitate to recommend your tours to anyone.
