The walk up Catbells and the stay at The Beeches. The mountain fresh air, the views, the market (which was on during our stay) and the friendly people make the stay very pleasant. The only drawback is the rain - which is to be expected in this area.

Brilliant walk even on a very windy day. Need to be prepared to do some rock scrambling. Wonderful views even in the rain

We usually walk from the centre of Keswick out of the town and up to Cat Bells. It's a smashing walk through beautiful countryside and the walk up Cat Bells is sufficiently strenuous to make kids feel as if they have achieved something. Views from the top over Lake Derwentwater are stunning.

You will find this fell very popular which if you are new to the hills of Cumbria is a good place to start. Just follow the crowds to the top. The views are worth the climb and you can either start the walk from the car park at the bottom or stroll from Keswick about 30 minutes away on foot.

Excellent short (but steep) walk at the foot of Derwent water. Stunning views and easily accessible from Keswick. Useful gap filler if you only have a couple of hours.

We completed this walk with our teenage children and thoroughly enjoyed it. Just the right amount of scenery, rocky ascents and map reading skills.

Decided to walk this because of my mother not being very into hiking. was a bit icy today and there is not very easy to find parking. but take ur time and wear proper shoes. lovely walk for children and older. the last tip is a bit harder.

The weather was closing in as we began our walk up Catbells. However we were adequately prepared and pressed on - with quite a few other hardy souls on the hill. Despite the weather, the views of Derwentwater along the route are fantastic. Nearing the top there is a short scramble - made interesting by the quite severe gales blowing... More
