A nice gentle walk in the hills. During our visit the fell was covered in snow giving the landscape a more dramatic atmosphere. Walking May be more tricky in these conditions but it ensures the view as are amazing. The walk itself isn't hard but it is worth attempting. I would recommend this walk. Watch out for the mountain bikers.... More

A good half day expedition in the Cumberland fells. Not a tremendously high mountain, but a reasonably strenuous climbing good paths throughout. The view from the top on a clear day is fantastic. Best to return to the village by descending north, then using the path on the shore of Ullswater. Important - just because it's a relatively small hill,... More

This is a stunning walk especially with the unseasonally good weather for the end of October, we walked back down to Sandwick and back to Patterdale along the side of Ullswater, great views

If your into walking and can maange a couple of thousand feet then this is the place to go. Catch the boat from Glenridding to Howtown and take the lakeside walk until you get to the small cafe on the Bridleway to Patterdale. Take the path up and witness the stunning views. One of Wainwrights favourites.

climbed up here the direct route from Patterdale and then back down past the old slate workings and along Ullswater. An 8 mile Lake District classic!

We did this walk on a very hot August day walking from the Sykeside Campsite near Brotherswater and heading up Place Fell from Hartsop. The path up was at times steep (as would probably be expected when climbing a mountain) but very easy under foot. The views from the top were incredible looking over High Street, Helvelyn, Ullswater, the Kirkstone... More

This is a truly wonderful hike rising above Ullswater, travelling along a ridge, then returning alongside the Lake.
