In this instalment of how our staff explore the Lake District, we are going to take a look at how Amanda Tremble, who is based in our Keswick office, would explore the Lake District National Park.

The best thing is its calming nature. Pull on your walking boots get out in the fresh air and you soon feel amazing.
I love to walk up Latrigg. It takes about 2 hours - it is very little effort for a fantastic view down over Derwentwater and the Borrowdale Valley.
A walk around Derwentwater. Start by going to Castlerigg
Stone Circle, then over Walla Crag. On the way down visit Surprise View and Ashness Bridge then hit the shore of Derwentwater and follow the path around the lake, maybe stopping off at the Lodore Hotel or Marymount Hotel for refreshments.
Continue over the duckboards at the end of the lake and follow the path by the side of the lake towards Portinscale, calling in at LIngholm Gardens. If the walk is too much there are jetties where the launch can pick you up, to take you back to Keswick.
A trip on a 'hop on hop off' open top bus from Keswick to Kendal. Sitting on the top deck you have fantastic views going through Grasmere, Ambleside, Windermere and Kendal. It is a great way to see and visit lots of locations.
Friar’s Crag, another stunning view of Derwentwater and the surrounding fells.
