It was a gorgeous morning and we had time on our hands, so we chose one of the longer walks to the village of Talkin. This walk can be made longer or shorter depending on time and ability. It offers some fantastic views, venturing through fields, fells, lanes and villages. There's even a convenient pub stop if you time it right! We did find that part of the footpath is a little tricky to find as it seems that some of the footpath signs pointing through a farm yard may have mysteriously disappeared! With the help of the map we were able to find our way though. All in all, a fantastic morning out. The walk took us just over 3 hours but we didn't make any stops other than to snap a few photos. Adding on the additional Jockey Shields loop and a picnic stop, this could easily be made into a full day of walking....now, hot tub anyone?!

Each of our cottages has a packet of walking maps that we've created to show walks right from the doorstep and help you make the most of getting outdoors and exploring the area while you're staying with us. This week, we decided to pretend we were on holiday here and took one of those maps with us and away we went.
