“Pleasant walk and great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

A pleasant walk up from the centre of town, the path is well defined and is reasonably maintained.
Would be good for dog walking or a moderate walk up a hill.
Views from the top were excellent as photography material, the atmosphere tranquil and information signs interesting.

“good views!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

A short flight of steep steps to get to the castle and while it is a ruin, its worth the effort as there is an amazing view over Kendal town centre and distant fells.

“Your average castle”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

A nice place to visit on a walk, but nothing particually special about it! They have events there sometimes like fireworks on 5th november and it's well worth a visit then!

A nice 10 min stroll up the steep hill from the river to the castle ruins gave nice views of Kendal.
