Where to stay: Day 1


This website has sadly been ‘mothballed’ as of January 2023 and once the hosting has finished I will take it down completely. This is due, mainly, to the fact that I moved to Spain in 2020 and location and time constraints make it difficult to keep the site as up to date as I would like.

For those who want more information in the future then there is an excellent Facebook page offering up to date tips, advice and information on all things Cumbria Way related and this can be found at www.facebook.com/groups/CumbriaWayWalk – if you have Facebook then I would highly recommend you joining this active group.

There is also a relatively new webpage dedicated to the Cumbria Way and although it is short on information as of January 2023, hopefully it will grow and fill the void left by me decommissioning this site. More information can be found at www.cumbriaway.co.uk.
