Sadgill, Shipham Knotts, Kentmere Pike & Harter Fell from Haweswater.

Apologies for the delay in presenting another walk - I've been held up by a bad cold, pretty grotty weather, but more importantly the birth of my Grandson Sebastian. As my daughter lives 5 hours away in Essex and the Lakes are pretty much two hours in the opposite direction, I was under strict orders that when the time came, I would not be up mountain anywhere. So, basically we waited - and waited - and waited.

All happy now though, baby and mum are all well and good, even if 2 weeks late - I'll remind him of this inconvenience in the years to come. I can now resume normal walking days out.

It felt like I hadn't been to the lakes for years, not weeks, and I had such a job choosing where to go - but I decided on a favourite area of mine - Haweswater. It's always a great place to start with so many routes to choose from and it's one of the easiest parts of the lakes for me to get to. But the main reason is the amazing hot bacon and sausage buns you can get with your morning coffee at Tebay Farmshop services - the best breakfast by far for any trip to the lakes.
