Walk to Manesty and High Brandelhowe Jetty in Borrowdale Valley

Talk about having one of the most beautiful walks in the Lake District on your doorstep………

…..when staying at the  Borrowdale Hotel (which coincidentally is in the Borrowdale Valley), this signpost to Manesty is literally across the road. And what a quiet road it is, for all that it is the “main” road, in fact the only road, into the Borrowdale region.

No wonder we went back to the same hotel SEVEN times last year. it’s only a 90-minute drive up the road, so we can pack a lot into two days with only an overnight stay.

These pictures were taken just after breakfast on our first trip of this year.  The sun seemed to be shining on things close to us whilst the hills were still hazy.

The images are in the right order, from the signpost at the beginning of the walk up to the lakeside stile just before High Brandelhowe Jetty.

The walk continued along the lakeside but that’s for another post !
