About Us

The inspiration for WalkLakes came from our good friends Paul and Helen of Walkhighlands. We'd talked to them about how the same concept would work equally well elsewhere and, with their blessing (and not a little help and advice along the way), we thought we'd give it a go for the Lake District.

So now Beth, with her trusty companion Jessie the collie/golden retriever cross by her side, is pounding the fells of the Lake District finding you the best walks while Paul, with Jessie's brother Jack for company, stays at home and looks after the web site.

If you want to get in touch with us do drop us an email or you can phone us on (01768) 800201.

Our Banner Photo

The photograph which we used for our banner the summit of Fleetwith Pike with the summit cairn and Jessie in the foreground and Buttermere in the background. You can find the un-cropped version on step 5 of our walk Haystacks and Fleetwith Pike.

Financing the Site

We fund our work through two main methods: accommodation listings, and by selling Adobe/PDF versions of our walks along with the GPX route files. You can find out more about the former here and about content relating to our walks here on our blog. Thank you for your support.
