Walking in the Lake District
February 4, 2014 10:31 AM Subscribe
My mom and I are planning on taking a walking trip in the UK's Lake District in May. We're currently considering booking with Contours Walking Holidays
to walk Cumbria Way. They provide maps and routes and arrange accommodations and baggage transportation. However I haven't been able to find much in the way of reviews for them -- possibly because each person's trip is so different. My question is basically whether using Contours is the way to go here (perhaps someone reading this has personal experience with them?) or if I should be looking at a different company or some other way to make arrangements.

Mom and I are in the US and while we've both visited the UK several times, we haven't been in over a decade, and I've never been to the Lake District, so we feel a bit overwhelmed with the planning of all this. Please share any insight you have into planning a trip like this! Once we have things a bit more set up, I may ask some more specific questions about the area, too! Thanks guys.
