I took this easy walk up Brant Fell from Bowness to enjoy the views over the lake. The walk was easy and you definitely get a great view for such a short walk. Well worth the short effort to escape the crowds in Bowness.

Brant Fell is a hill in the English Lake District, with amazing views, fresh-cool air. Just a liitle walk from the town and worth the effort. We had a great moment with God's masterpiece.

After an interesting walk we climbed up Brant Fell. There are superb views of Windermere from the top and plenty of spots to have a picnic.

A nice walk with the pooch. This was steep in some places & as the weather had not been good previously, was a little muddy in some places. We got a good day for January & had a great view & although a bit frosty,...More

Great little walk, short but sweet but just enough to give you the feel good factor, gives you a reminder of what The Lakes is all about

Lovely viewpoint over the lakes, easily accessible with a short walk from Bowness. Not strenuous and suitable for moderately fit walkers

Is this walk suitable for a pram? City jogger with Big wheels so not a flimsy buggy type! X

You couldn't get to the top of the fell with any kind of pram. It's very steep and I don't think some could manage it on foot.
