“Free and beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

A lovely walk upto and around the grounds, so pretty and an amazing view of Kendal. No matter what time of year or day. Even in the most grubbiest of weather it is so picturesque, I go as often as I can. At different times of the year there can be different events going on which brings communities together. If you visit Kendal this is a definate must do, and why not? It's free and don't forget, the best things in life are free.

Nothing much to see, but a nice walk out from the town centre when we were looking to kill a couple of hours one day.

For a wonderful 360 degree view of Kendal and surround hill there is no better but facilities for sitting and enjoying this is very little.
