Nordic Walking is a specific fitness technique and is not to be confused with trekking, hill walking or trail running as the poles are not planted in front of the walker/runner but in a specific way that increases the use of the upper body. It can be done by anybody, anywhere and does not require expensive equipment or clothing.
Open 7 days a week, carrying over 100 different gins, 70 Cumbrian real ales, a plethora of Cumbrian spirits and liqueurs, and an eclectic mix of food, drink and outdoor clothing, there really is something for everyone.
