5 Summer Walks in the Lake District

Summer Walks in the Lake District


Glistening lakes, stunning mountains and meadows in full bloom - is there any more beautiful place than the Lake District in summer? With such an amazing backdrop, summer is the perfect time to head out for a walk and here are 5 walks which are within easy reach of us here at the Pheasant Inn:


Dogs welcome at our historic lake District Inn

Dogs at the Pheasant Bar

Here at the Pheasant Inn we don’t think that our four legged friends should miss out on holidays too. So if you are thinking of booking a break in the Lake District and the thought of leaving behind your dog in kennels or with a dog sitter fills you with guilt, then you will be delighted to know we have two dog friendly rooms and welcome dogs in our bar too.


Top 10 events in the Lake District this summer

Lowther Castle, Cumbria

As summer is now upon us and the sun itself is making a regular appearance, this is a great time to visit the Lake District as there is so much going on. It’s been hard to narrow it down, but we’ve hand-picked 10 of the best events and festivals going on nearby to take in whilst you are visiting this summer.


Whisky Business - a trip round the Lakes Distillery

One of the newest attractions to open in the Lake District is the Lakes Distillery, at Bassenthwaite Lake, offering people the opportunity to see how the largest whisky distillery in England and the Lake District’s first legal (!) distillery operates. Being intrigued by both the prospect of a Lake District Whisky and the fact that it is only a few minutes away from us in Setmurthy, we recently popped in to take a look.
