July 12th 2020
It is a slightly different experience, with a maximum of 16 guests (compared with our full capacity of 38), private showers and no self-catering. But it should still be great fun, with cooked breakfast included and dinner available in accordance with new guidelines. And, most importantly, still a great opportunity for rest and escape, with access to the wonderful Great Langdale valley and all that the Lake District has to offer.
