The C2C Cycle Challenge

Depending on your starting point the Sea to Sea (C2C) cycle route is approximately 140 miles in length from Workington or Whitehaven on the Cumbrian coast to Newcastle or Sunderland on the Northumbrian side. The UK's most popular 'challenge' cycle route passes through the northern Lake District before climbing the Pennines, 'the roof of England', and then descending to the railway paths of County Durham. However you approach it this is one of, if not the best long distance cycle route in the UK.

Walking

The Lake District National Park is world famous for its scenery and here at Wayfarers we're right on the doorstep. We provide accommodation for walkers and hikers looking to explore this beautiful part of the world.

There is such a variety of terrain in the Lake District that there is something for everyone to enjoy, no matter what your level of fitness or experience. This can range from flat valley and lakeside walks to full days out scrambling some of the UK's most demanding ridges.

Climbing

The first ascent of Nape's Needle in the late 1880s is said to have been the birth of the sport of rock climbing. Fast forward 130 years and the Lake District National Park is still one of the world's best areas to get your hands on the rock. From road side bouldering to full mountain days out there are routes and locations to challenge and amaze climbers of all abilities and experience. No two days are the same which make the Lake District a must for any climber in the UK.
