Visited on a Misty Saturday, but we were not disappointed. Views were amazing even if we couldn’t see the lake.

Great walk if staying in the centre of Windermere. Plenty of choices for a pint at the bottom!

Views are stunning!

Worth the effort! The views are amazing at the top. There are two marked routes depending on your fitness level. It was lovely to see all ages throughout the walk.

Well laid tracks to the viewpoint through a lovely wooded area, emerging at the viewpoint with amazing views of the whole of Windermere and surroundings.

This place inspired Wainwright to begin his cataloguing of the fells. Does it need a better recommendation? The fact that the path now makes it accessible to almost everyone (but that there's trickier alternatives to keep it interesting) and there's a Gruffalo to keep the kids entertained on the way up seals the deal. It's such a good value route that I ran up and down twice today to celebrate my birthday.

after finding nowhere open/free to have a meal on a monday evening we decided to give this place a try after seeing the reviews and pictures of it online. on arrival it didnt look quite like the pictures make it out to look but at least it wasnt that busy so we were able to get a table to eat all be it by a fridge. the menu that had on was quite small but enough to choose from. as not many people were eating we got our food rather quickly and it was very nice the biggest let down was the drinks we had a pint of Guinness and a rum and coke both of which tasted very watery and had no taste at all

This was the best marked trail we were on. It's paved and they have clearly marked two ways to the top; one is less steep and has no stairs.

The most accessible fell. Easy stroll to top, to reveal a magnificent vista. If there is low cloud it is still worth it.

Takes about 15 mins to walk up to Orrest Head. There's also an easy path for buggies and wheelchairs to get up there.

Walked this with my family yesterday and it was great! The starting point is really central - JST opposite the Booths and Windemere train station.
A steady walk up (not too steep) and great views!
Definitely worth doing if you’re in Windemere!
