A myriad of trails and public footpaths with stunning views of the Lakeland fells.Very impressive, i could seriously get lost in this area, so take a good ordinance survey map to plan those walks.

The Coledale Horseshoe must be in my top 5 walks in the Lake District. It is truly spectacular on a clear day with stunning views. Make no mistake this is not an easy walk and some places feel a little exposed but it's superb. I started in Braithwaite in a clockwise direction, climbing up Stile End, Sail and onto Crag... More

Starting from Braithwaite we headed up onto Grizedale Pike beautiful views looking over on the route to come including sail, causey pike, barrow. A slight brushing of snow on the tops made it look very pretty. A need for a good level if fitness and a map and compass is essential as cloud can move in on the fells very... More

Completed the coledale round, stunning views but a strenuous walk covering 8 peaks in total as extended the walk to grass moor fantastic views over most of Lakeland derwent water and Buttermere valley and on a clear sunny day this was my highlight.

I guess I am biased as I am trying to complete the Wainwrights but all you can say is stunning views, amazing wildlife and still a part of England you can take yourself away for the day and be on your own and enjoy the peace and quiet of it all. You can't really review a place like this as... More

The lakes and fells are where my heart lies, but the central fells are so accessible, there is a hill for everyone, wheelchair user or fully ambulant, high level super-fit or the happy wanderer, there is a fell with your name on it....and remember, size doesn't matter!

This is indeed a very beautiful area. If setting out to walk, especially in places like Great Gable, do ensure that you are properly equiped and are competent with map and compass. The temperature on the tops can be much lower than at the valley floors and poor visibility can set in very quickly. Last Tuesday I was walking in... More
