The area surrounding Joiner's Mews is perfect for short to medium walks with or without your dog.
Peter has put together a description and map of a few local walks which are detailed in a folder 'Suggested Walks and Cycle Rides' that is available to all guests at Joiner's Mews. The following is a short summery of these walks:
- A Short Walk from Joiner's Mews A nice short walk of 4 Kilometres ideal for those wet days as it is all on metalled roads.
- The Panhandle Walk A pleasant walk with good views ideal for early morning or sunset. This walk can be extended to take in Heversham head which has spectacular views over Morecambe Bay .
- Levens Deer Park Walks Levens Deer Park is simply the best place to walk in this area, there is an abundance of wild life, including Deer and the famous Bagot Goats.
- The Heversham Trail A 3 mile ramble through the parish of Heversham.
- Walk to the fairy Steps A 2 mile walk from the Wheasheaf in Beetham.
- Elterwater to/from Skelwith Bridge This is not a 'local' walk as it requires a 40 Minutes drive to get to the start of the walk , but its well worth the effort. This walk has the benifit of a great cafe at one end and a pub at the other end.
Lake District Walks
In the 'Suggested Walks and Cycle Rides' folder there are many classic Lake District Walks that have been collected by Peter.
This section is under construction. However, Sustrans National Cycle Network, newly opened 80 mile. route 700, between Walney island and Barrow=in-Furnace, passes Joiner's Mews and forms part of the Sustrans wider network. There are also several books available at Joiner's Mews that describe, in detail, lots of great Lake District rides.
