Card-payments for the Hawkshead Ghost Walk may be made at KITTchEN.
The Coniston Ghost Walk is Cash Only: there is no card-reader concealed in the gentleman's frockcoat.
Will I need to bring anything?
We recommend that you wear appropriate clothing; these walks take place in Cumbria which means that low temperatures and precipitation are inevitable. We wish you to be warm and dry. Please be so good as to wear sensible shoes/boots as some of the paths that we shall take may be rough and uneven.
Finally, of course, we shall be exploring the unilluminated parts of Lakeland villages where shadows lengthen and grow sinister. Torches are recommended.
May I bring my dog?
Both walks are suitable for canines.
However, many have been lost to forces unknown...
May I bring my child?
These walks are suitable for all, but do remember that we will be traversing long, lonely paths;
the child, in question, may get tired. And we will be exploring tales of death, pestilence and murder; the child, in question, may be frightened.
How scary is it?
This depends very much on your imagination; some guests shriek, others shudder. But one thing is for certain, all these stories possess a certain macabre atmosphere.
Tallow Tales employs engaging, traditional storytelling to convey an atmosphere of the deepest unease.
Is it safe? Have these stories ever summoned either a restless spirit or a demonic presence?
We cannot fully answer this question.
Our research suggests that any summoned presence may latch onto any one of our guests in order to use them as a host. To avoid this, the common practice is to make a slight detour before going back to one’s accommodation. Both Coniston and Hawkshead have a variety of charming public houses in which to while away a few hours before returning to dark bedrooms and dark dreams.
