The Family Business MidiCon – North West

Thursday 6 October 2022
Levens Hall, Milnthorpe

FamBiz Netwalk

Thursday 13 October 2022
Ullswater/ Patterdale – North Cumbria

Our Cumbria FamBiz Netwalk 2022 will offer a day of great company and conversation with other family businesses, hiking amongst the stunning scenery of the Lake District with our mountain guides.


Dig out those hiking boots and prepare for a day of great company and conversation with other family businesses, amongst the stunning scenery of the Lake District.

Our Cumbria FamBiz Netwalk 2022 will take place on Thursday 13 October, led by family business owners and mountain leaders, Nic & Charles Sproson.

We will be providing further details of the Netwalk route and length closer to the date, but we expect the hike to be approximately 7-8 miles in length and moderately challenging. 

The route will take in a section of the iconic Ullswater Way route in addition to some of the lesser known areas around the Martindale valley during the deer rutting season, where the Red Deer can sometimes be seen and heard. 

Prior to the FamBiz Netwalk, all walkers will receive details in the week prior to the event confirming the meeting point, parking arrangements, weather forecast and kit required. All terrain shoes with good grip will be required, along with a waterproof jacket and a rucksack with bottle of water and high energy snack.  The walk leaders will always have a first aid kit and emergency kit, but you must be able to carry your own rucksack for the duration of the walk. You are very welcome to bring your Nordic Poles or Tracking Poles if you wish.

For any questions on this event, please email

Dogs: If you would like to bring a well-behaved dog on a lead, please email us to let us know. We will email all walkers in the week before the walk to ensure that no participants have any objections to this and then re-confirm to all those that have requested, that they will be allowed.
