The area covered includes most of the National Park and dips into quieter adjoining countryside. Visiting both renowned tourist spots and villages where two is a crowd even in high summer, the walks in this guide have the distinct advantage of including around forty of the region's best pubs in which the thirsty rambler can quench that well-earned thirst.
From easy lowland ambles to hair-raising leaps across foaming upland torrents there's a walk to satisfy most appetites; and with beers from home-brew pubs and tiny breweries up to regional and national favourites, a great day out is guaranteed!
