Tea on Top of the World

Tea on Top of the World


OK so it's not Everest - but Gummers How gives stunning 360 degree views. For something a little different - we offer 'afternoon tea' on the summit (or morning coffee) accompanied by sticky buns.

The whole trip can be done in less than 2 hrs so even in a busy schedule you can stand on top of a Lake District Fell, with panoramic views of the Southern Lake district. From the car park we'll guide you up the mountain with a choice of rocky scramble or easy walk. For most people it's a comfortable half hour to the summit from where you can take a further stroll along the tops enjoying the views.


Activities are priced at a set cost for 1 - 4 people or per person for 5+ in a group. These are private sessions for your group. All specialist equipment is provided and an experienced instructor will meet you at the activity site to save your fuel and time.

Offers may be available for term time midweek and for booking 2 activities in a day. Please contact the office for details.

We run open sessions in school holidays which are priced per person and suitable for 8+ years (8 - 12 year olds accompanied by an adult). Please see our website or give us a ring for details of open session activities and dates.
