This trail has everything you want in a hike: mountains, meadows, forest, wildlife, birds, English villages, and more. We did it in 12 days and stayed in B&Bs. This trek is not easy, the Lake District does have steep inclines where a few places are a scramble. If it's raining and slick it could get scary... when there is not a steep incline/decline it's a 20+ mile slog of a day. Worth it, but I would say it's a difficult hike as opposed to a moderate.

Except for the 24 mile day the hiking is fantastic . Picture perfect. Highly reccomended.
