Absolutely brilliant route. First stay at Howarth Farm outside Aptreewick. Plain and simple on working farm therefore various noises and smells. New Inn do good meals and beer.
Second stop at Fold Farm Kettlewell.Right in village (peak season only).
Third stop at Ribblehead Bunkhouse. Welcome break after long drag. Pretty basic.
Fourth stop at Pinfold in Sedbergh.Best washing facilities I've come across.
Fifth stop at Burneside (pronounced Burnieside). Hall Farm next to Pele Tower.
Unofficial ie a field with cows,sheep & ducks, but also use of hot and cold water and toilet.
Must recommend pub in village, The Jolly Angler. No food but allowed us to order Chinese from Kendal and provided dining room with warm plates etc.
Last night at Green Gables Broad Street in Windermere, spot on and friendly.
