Find your inner peace in the stunning surroundings of the Lake District with our brand-new Group Silent Walks. The trend towards silent walking is growing, with more and more of us discovering the restorative power of connecting with nature in pure, relaxing silence.

It is time to take out your headphones, leave your phone behind and embrace the art of silence. Silent walking provides an opportunity for mental decluttering, offering an open space to be in tune with your body and your thoughts, observe your surroundings and fully participate in nature.

A brilliant form of moving meditation, a silent walk allows you to reconnect with your mind, while your body engages in focused, restorative action. Designed to reshape the way we connect with ourselves and our surroundings, silent walks offer the chance for a deeper connection with nature. You are more likely to notice the beauty of nature and observe wildlife if you are in tune with your own thoughts and not distracted by music, phone calls or notifications.

In order to facilitate this healing, relaxing practice, we have introduced guided Group Silent Walks as part of our wellness offering. During your stay with us, you can book a guided silent walk to appreciate silence amidst the serene beauty of the Lake District alongside other like-minded individuals.

Thanks to its remote location and large areas of natural beauty, the Lake District receives minimal noise pollution, providing the perfect backdrop for reconnecting with nature and with yourself.

Even if the animals remain elusive, embrace the excitement of spotting signs of local wildlife, keeping a lookout for animal prints, woodpecker holes and bird nests in the surrounding trees.

Leading the walks is Lucy Dunn, Education & Animal Conservation Officer at our very own Lake District Wildlife Park. Lucy reveals: “The silent walks are a beautiful sensory experience. Immersed in the serene surroundings with minimal noise, your senses will come alive and you will be able to truly experience every moment.”

Engage your senses on your guided Group Silent Walk

See

Take in the tranquil beauty of Bassenthwaite Lake, surrounded by lush greenery and striking mountains that create a breathtaking panorama. The stunning landscape reflected on the calm surface of the water adds to the sense of peace and tranquillity.

Our 400-acre estate features peaceful woodland with incredible views over Bassenthwaite Lake and the Skiddaw Mountains – the perfect backdrop for a restorative and mindful silent walk.

Hear

Enjoy a soothing, natural soundtrack provided by the gentle lapping of water from nearby lakes and streams, beautiful birdsong and the rustle of leaves in the breeze. As you embrace the silence, even the smallest sounds become noticeable, enhancing the feeling of serenity.

Smell

The fresh outdoor air carries hints of pine and spruce, while earthy aromas of soil and moss evoke nature’s embrace. During the spring and summer months, delicate wildflowers perfume the air with their fragrant blooms, while near the water’s edge, the clean, crisp scent of freshwater mingles with the distinctive smell of freshly fallen rain.

Touch

Run your fingers over the rough bark of ancient trees in the dense forests or enjoy the feel of smooth, cool pebbles against your fingertips as you walk along the shoreline of Bassenthwaite Lake.

Soft moss will cushion your steps as you hike through verdant valleys, while the touch of a gentle breeze against your skin brings a sense of refreshment and vitality.

Each touch offers a unique opportunity to engage with the textures and sensations of the natural world, forging a deeper connection to the landscape.

The Lake District is an idyllic sanctuary for those seeking to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and embrace nature. Envelop yourself in a sensory experience like no other at Armathwaite Hall Hotel and Spa.
