The lakes can get really busy and too touristy at times. Patterdale can offer an escape from the crowds. There's a car park (fee payable) that cost about £4 for enough time to do the walk so we all parked there. Our group decided to go anti-clockwise round the walk and we are glad they did. I reckon that the peak is approx 2/3 of the way when choosing this direction and the views down the lake on the decent are pretty good too. It's not the easiest walk in the Lakes and there's a tiny amount of scrambling/climbing necessary. Happy to return here in sunnier months but glad we did the walk.

Usual ascent if from Patterdale - a couple of steep miles. Quieter way is to get to the northern end near Sandwick using the steamer to Howtown or skirting along the lakeside then traversing south over Place Fell.

We walked to the summit from the south where the path is very clear and the views outstanding. We then headed off to the North and quickly ran out of path. In the end I wish we'd gone down the way we'd gone up. The area to the North of the summit is big and difficult to navigate. We had to scramble a route down.

Hiked from Patterdale hotel along the edge of Ullswater then doubled back and up to Place fell, then back down a fairly steep descent into Patterdale, it was approx 9 miles. At times it was hard going and steep, paths were not always obvious, and some a little overgrown but worth the effort once up there. The Scenery was stunning looking down onto Ullswater, Patterdale and beyond. Make sure you take a camera, you won't be disappointed. We were lucky and had excellent weather which is why the views were so spectactular. Tiring but thoroughly enjoyable to be able to soak in the views. Highly recommended.
