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

We were amazingly lucky with the weather at Easter 2015. Walks included Barrow, Watendlath, Castle Crag, Catbells, Maiden Moor, Green Gable and Great Gable. Also low level walks around Derwentwater, Grange, Rosthwaite and Buttermere. What a wonderful part of the world. Pack plenty of snacks and water, wear good boots and take wet weather gear. Good maps essential. Tell someone... More

The Central Fells were categorised by the ubiquitous Wainwright as the area between Keswick and Langdale, east of Borrowdale/Langstrath and west of Thirlmere/Dunmail Raise. (So not really Braithwaite, despite the address above). There are no big 3,000 footers amongst these fells (High Raise at 2,500 feet being the high point) but they are superb accessible hills crammed with some classic... More

The whole area around Keswick and Derwentwater is delightful. The weather may be variable, but you must go prepared. The scenery is stunning and changes mood so frequently, Start off with a climb to Latrigg to get an overall view. Go out of season when there are less crowds.
