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.
