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

Not one of the highest fells but well placed!!! for views and has its moments in the snow and wind. The walk back around the Lake was, as is often the case, up and down

Children aged 5, 8 and 10 plus two adults parked at the old white lion pub (£4 but refundable against anything if returning). We walked up and was surprised at how the youngest loved the incline and our daughter didn't do that face all girls of a certain age do. The views were stunning and we stopped for refuelling before... More

From Patterdale Its not too far and not too steep, a good path goes right to the top. Great views if you are lucky and get a clear day.

We walked along the side of Ullswater for about 31/2 miles before turning away from the Lake and up the valley towards Place Fell. This path is uneven and rocky in places. The route for the ascent was moderate and gave views down to the north of the Lake. The path is soft underfoot for most of the walk up... More
