This is a magnificent walk in the Lake District with only minor difficulties along the way starting from Patterdale (a bit steep right before you reach Place Fell). If you decide to continue past the peak and head north pay much attention to the elusive path down to your right. I choose to descend through the northernmost one, which was... More

A good walk but easily accessed along good clear paths when accessed via Boredale Hause. Also Angle Tarn, a short diversion on the way.

Beautiful views over Ullswater. Observed the Birkett boat race, stunning views of the boats going up and down the lake with full colourful sails. A photographers dream. Stopped for superior hot chocolate and coffees at the farmhouse on way back to Patterdale.

A perfect climb for an over-50s lady. Amazing views. Climb from Howtown and down to Patterdale - there's a wonderful hotel for coffee at the start and then a tea shop at the bottom

Loved the walk up to Place Fell, the views are awesome, & contrary to belief it wasn't busy, in fact out of school holidays if you put your boots on & walk up the fells you can barely see a soul some days.

Walk along track to Side Farm campsite, turn right and make way up hillside rightwards. Bit of a plateau, bear towards left and head for Place Fell. Gradient gradually steepens until summit is reached. Views are great in decent weather!! Phil

lovely walk but quite a scramble if you head off piste from the main trail. I recommend calling into the campsite on the way into Glenridding. They have a great little tea room serving homemade cakes, ice cream, coffee & tea etc. Friendly service and a welcome break after this lovely hike
