We will meet just outside Settle on the A65 and then head for the batch of lanes in GODS OWN COUNTY. The majority of the lanes will be on gravel and rocks with some of the trails having some rock steps and a ford. We will aim to finish on Saturday for around 1600 and head for our evening accommodation. This will be a treat for some as we plan to stay at one of the most stunning inns in the country .One of the best 4x4 Lake District tours you can Join.



The group will set off after a hearty breakfast and head for ENGLAND'S COUNTY OF LAKES . After a stop for provisions and fuel we will head across Windermere on the ferry.   We will start our first day of lanes taking in Grizedale forest........ We will aim to finish for 1600hrs and head for our camp . A beautiful camp site situated near The Old Man of Coniston .  This is  a basic farm camp site but it does have showers and a washing room .
Just a 15 min walk down the road is a great little pub once again warm and friendly atmosphere.  I would say that this midi expedition will be fine for a  2" lift and AT tyres
