 Ullswater Way Dalemain Loop – New for 2018!

Following the fantastic success of the Ullswater Way, an additional 5 mile circular loop has been developed to enable people to link from the Ullswater way to Dalemain Mansion with its Garden and Tea Rooms and Dacre village with its ancient church and traditional pub.

The Loop is well signposted and an illustrated account of the walk can also be found in the Official Guide to the Ullswater Way, available in businesses around the Ullswater Way, with £1 for every copy sold donated to the National Park to help maintain the route.
