Be prepared. The Lake District can often appear to have weather all of it's own, sunny one minute, changeable the next. Seasoned fell walkers will know to take appropriate steps to ensure their own safety, however if you're new to walking in the Lake District then just make yourself aware of your responsibilities and duty for your own safety before you set off anywhere. Everyone wants you to enjoy yourself and with just a little planning you cetainly will. See the Lake District National Park website for more advice.
Miles without Stiles. There are almost 40 routes across the National Park suitable for people with limited mobility, families with small chldren and pushchairs, wheelchair users, those that are not quite so energetic as they once were and those that just want an easy walk. Read more here..
Skiddaw sumit via The Edge. Covering a distance of a little over 8 miles (13 km) and 3300 feet on ascent (931m) this is a walk graded as 'difficult' so maybe not suited to the novice walker. Starting at nearby Overwater this route produces some pretty stunning vistas as well as reaching the peak of one of the countries highest mountains.
For further inspiration take a look at this Lake District walks website that has a whole section on rambles from Peter House Farm - how convenient is that!?
With a little planning you can follow a route that goes from the farm out past Skiddaw House, around Lonscale Fell, onto Latrigg, through Applethwaite and Millbeck and back to the cottage, a great Lakeland route for mountain bikers and quite some distance!
