Kentmere valley hiking-holidays


We have chosen the Longsleddale valley for your walking retreat/hiking holiday, because of it’s off the beaten track tranquility. It’s a little corner of the Lake District that has still maintained its unique appearance and feel. Therefore you will have space to properly relax and unwind.

The barn itself is at the head of the valley, one road in and out, you are surrounded by the beautiful Longsleddale fells and you get a truly Lake District experience. The nearby town of Kendal is 5 miles away, so therefore any last minute supplies can be purchased. hiking holidays


We stay in a comfortable bunk barn with mod cons like electricity, hot showers and flushing toilets. It is similar to a Youth Hostel but with exclusive use for the Pilates Walking Retreat group.  The barn has a wood burning stove in the main dining/communal area.

Sleeping is split into a male and female dorm area, see pictures.
