Join travel writer Tom Chesshyre for a lakeland adventure like no other. Explore towering mountains, wide-open valleys and magnificent lakes �_" stopping off at a cosy inn or two along the way �_" on a 379-mile hike around the Lake DistrictFrom Penrith to Ullswater, via Keswick, Cockermouth, Coniston, Grasmere and Windermere, plus many places in between, Tom Chesshyre puts on his walking boots and sets forth along the trails, drawn onwards by the dramatic scenery that attracts more than 19 million visitors each year. Across landscape that so inspired the Romantic poets, he takes in remote parts of the parkland that many tourists miss �_" enjoying encounters aplenty with farmers, fell runners and fellow hikers, while staying in shepherds�_T huts, bothies and old climbers�_T hotels along the way, and even going for a (chilly) dip in Derwentwater. This is the Lake District seen from its walking paths �_" with just a backpack, an open mind�_� and a spring in the step.
