Cumbria Way Day 2, Caldbeck to Bassenthwaite

It was another good day today. Good weather and spectacular views from the tops on the Cumbria Way in the Lake District.

We had enormous breakfasts at the Oddfellows Arms before heading towards the hills just south. Then it was up High Pike and along to Knott and Little Calva. The descent from here was down a steep heather clad slope to rejoin the Cumbria Way below.

The last bit was across fields to Bassenthwaite village. Fortunately the Sun Inn was open so we called in for a short break before heading down the road to the Castle Inn Hotel for the night. Just 13 miles today.
