    As a regular walker in the Lake District I was already familiar with some of the routes in the book. The detail in the book provides added interest and things to look out for that I would not otherwise have been aware of. As with any guide book, you will need the appropriate os map, though the guide book helps identify some great routes and the descriptions have ensured I've been on track throughout the walks. More info on the pubs would be useful but appreciate that this sort of information can change frequently. An interactive website featuring reviews of pubs, condition of paths, etc would be a useful addition to a great guide book.

    I bought this book last Christmas for my partner. We tried the Grasmere Sunday walk & had a fantastic time. The step by step directions are clear & easy to follow

    I got this for my dad for christmas as he and his wife spend a lot of weekends in the lakes and got bored of the same walks, he has had a flick through it and said it looks good. (I think he was persuaded by the pubs in it) Only reason for not five stars is that he hasn't tried any of the walks yet.
