Allerdale Ramble Accommodation and Other Services
RambleFest displays details of the Allerdale Ramble guidebooks and maps, accommodation, camping, where to eat and drink, and public transport. We also include an Ordnance Survey map link for each location along the route for which we display service details.
Please refer to the Allerdale Ramble Accommodation, Services and Mileage Table (below) for places visited along the route. By clicking on any location, the Ordnance Survey map for that location can be opened and dragged (and re-sized) to follow the route of the Ramble.
The Allerdale Ramble is a long-distance walk in miniature, and is undemanding. It begins in Seathwaite in the north-west section of the Lake District and finishes at Skinburness on the Solway Firth, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. As can be seen from the Allerdale Ramble Mileages and Services Table (below), there is plenty of accommodation stopping points, making the Allerdale Ramble perfect for those doing their first long-distance footpath, or those who only have a few days to spare.

Notes on Allerdale Ramble Accommodation
We have listed the accommodation for each location in our Allerdale Ramble Accommodation, Mileage and Services Table below. Simply click on a location to open the page displaying the details of accommodation, camping, pubs, restaurants and public transport available at that location, including addresses and contact info
We display a wide range of accommodation type, e.g. B&B, Guest House, Hotel, Inn, Hostel, Self catering, camping, etc. Not all accommodation will offer evening meals; this needs to be ascertained with the individual landlords. B&B (Bed and Breakfast) is almost always within the same house, farm, etc. as the people who run it. Guest Houses are usually expected to be grander than B&B, but are not necessarily so. Hotels are grander still, and with the expected higher cost, although there is a range of hotel quality. Hostels offer the most basic of accommodation above Bunk-House and Camping, and are therefore among the cheapest. Quite often some cleaning is required on the part of the resident.
We have included Camping, although there are relatively few official campsites. We advise telephoning the individual sites for info on facilities. Also, it may well be worth telephoning farmhouse B&B to enquire about camping.
We are always looking to improve our information, and welcome Allerdale Ramble accommodation recommendations.
