We've done this walk several times over the years, in all seasons and weather and it never fails to delight. The climb is steep in places but well worth it for the amazing views. Great spot for a picnic.

Walked from Waterhead via Ambleside, watefalls, Wansfell Pike, Troutbeck and back pas Jenkin Crag. Climb to the top of Wansfell Pike was hard but the views were magnificent

My boyfriend and I sat here for a while on a sunny afternoon with a perfect view of Windermere in a secluded location :-)
