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

Steep and not suitable for the infirm, but well worth the brief but considerable effort for absolutely brilliant views across all of Windermere. Kids moaned endlessly on the way up but were then giddy with joy at the fruits of their labour as we picnicked...More

A bit of a steep climb up from Bowness but once at the summit you will not be disappointed with the views of Lake Windermere and surrounding area

A good stretch of the legs after breakfast, with our hotel just around the corner from the start of it, between houses up a nice cul-de-sac. Once atop Brant Fell, the views are amazing over Windermere and the walk down and into town aren't isn't...More

A gentle and rather short walk from Bowness will take you up to Brant Fell's summit, here's an ideal place to picnic while looking out over Windermere. From here you can also ponder the two stone gate stoops which stand strangely on the fell top....More

Took a Sunday-morning walk, to try and burn off my hearty breakfast, and really enjoyed a pleasant walk. At the top, there are some fantastic views and not just of the Lake, but all the scenery, 360 degrees of it. Well worth it in my...More

A fantastic place, with beautiful views. Its quite steep in places but worth it in the end. There is some remnants from the Victorian view point that was up there for a bit of added interest.

Quick & easy climb from back of Bowness (steep in places) to see Lake Windermere & surrounding fells. Bonus to see low flying fast military jets on weekdays.

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.
