Fairfield Horseshoe from Ambleside Review by Jane, from London
Overall Experience
Dear Lyanda

We just wanted to formally acknowledge the excellent service we received from Lake District Walker this week. Both John and you were friendly and efficient and the joining instructions clear and helpful.

Rob Glaze was outstanding. As he may have let you know it was a very poor day weather-wise but he offered us options and we collectively took the decision to carry on around the route using it as a map reading and navigation challenge, as this was an area I was keen to improve in. Without a guide we would have returned to the car park I think as visibility was 20m!

The day was a masterclass in use of compass, map and other navigation techniques. Rob was instructive but never patronising and made it such an interesting day, at all times displaying professionalism, common sense and good humour. Even about finishing at 6pm!

It was the hardest walk my husband had undertaken yet he enjoyed the challenge, this is in large part due to Rob. I enjoyed every minute too.

Ed was a brilliant guide, very knowledgeable and set the pace perfectly for the whole group. Long walk with amazing views; we'd definitely use The Lake District Walker again. (Posted on 15/09/2017)

Thanks to Ross and the rest of the group for a great, relaxing day of walking peaks. Couldn't have asked for more. Already looking for the next walk with you. (Posted on 22/08/2017)

I did the hike this past weekend and we have a great time. Neil is a lovely guide, very involved, has a lot of information and knowledge. Thanks Neil! :)

We really enjoyed it. The hike is not easy, but it is worth every minute. (Posted on 04/07/2017)

Hi John

Just like to say what a great time I had on Saturday, Rachel was a really good guide, very enthusiastic, engaging with all the group and managing the pace.

I'll be booking again shortly.

Thanks Yvonne (Posted on 21/05/2017)

Would happily have done it again the next day Review by Simon
Overall Experience
Fabulous walk - great views and a lovely way to pass the day. A lot of ascent to start with but thereafter a gentle hike with views in all directions. Thank you (Posted on 27/04/2017)
Fairfield Horshoe Review by David and Tracy
Overall Experience
What a great day out! Many thanks to Richard (the guide), and nice to meet his dad too! We were lucky with the weather thank goodness, and a small group is always great! It was good to meet Brenda and David who have obviously done a lot of walking before. Tracy is pretty new to this kind of walk, but embraced it well and is keen to do more!

This is a 'big day out' though. So whilst it is lovely and well worthwile, you will need to be reasonably fit to complete it. We are still massaging sore muscles!

All in all, a lovely satisfying achievement. Many thanks and best wishes to all.

Dave and Tracy. (Posted on 07/10/2016)

Great Walk along the Fairfield Horseshoe Review by Rlunicomb
Overall Experience
Didn't feel confident doing this walk on our own - so we joined a scheduled day tour with The Lake District Walker. Glad we did! We ended up having the tour guide, Steve, to ourselves in the end, as no one else joined. It was a tough walk, but Steve was very patient and stayed with me (the slow one of the group) and encouraged me to keep going. He was very knowledgeable about the area and an interesting guy as well! We had a great day. Highly recommend a walk with these guys! (Posted on 19/09/2016)
