The Lake District is renowned for its beauty, as a place of outstanding natural scenery, and some of the best Gingerbread you will ever taste. But aside from the breathtaking views and delicious treats, there is another thing the Lakes has gained a reputation for over the years: raining.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. We’ve all heard it, and we all try to do our best when we can, but it can be hard to follow all the time.
Just think what would happen if we reduced our plastic waste to almost nothing. Oceans would be able to be cleared, recycling plants would no longer be overwhelmed, wildlife would thrive, and your conscious would feel a whole lot better.
Those familiar with Ullswater may be aware of a lovely stroll called the Ullswater Way. Although the full 20 miles is something I would always recommend to put on the bucket list and a must for any avid walker who is able, the walk can be divided into smaller legs with the help of the Ullswater ‘Steamers’. The boats stop at four piers (Glenridding, Pooley Bridge, Howtown, and Aira Force) allowing for walkers (and their dogs!) to see more of the lake without all the leg work.
We stayed at Tewitfield Marina – a purpose built hamlet just off the M6 in Lancashire to see what we could do in the local area that was dog-friendly and relax along the way.
