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...More

We stayed at the Patterdale Hotel and had a walk on this fell. There are stunning views of Ullswater and across to Helvellyn. Well worth the walk.

Amazing views with a relatively easily walk in. Well it's not helvellyn. 360 degree views especially of helvellyn which is practically in touching distance and ullswater. Several ways up and mean you can do a loop.

Stunning walk up Place Fell from Patterdale via Boredale Hause. Good for anyone with a reasonable fitness level as gradient up from the farm is easy to moderate. Good views, paths and easy to navigate.

It’s a relatively short walk up Place Fell from Patterdale but well worth it for the extensive views to the larger hills from the South East in a clockwise arc to the north. Worth extending to take in Angle Tarn Pikes if you have time.

Parked at Patterdale and combined Place Fell and Beda Fell for a great days walking. Great views of Ullswater and if you take the path on the Northern side by Ullswater as opposed to the main path, it’s very quiet.

I ran up Place Fell from Patterdale this morning, reaching the summit at just after 7am and sat by the Trig Point. The view was amazing, the silence even more so. I was 2000ft up and alone. It was an amazing moment I savoured for...More
