A pleasant and easy little walk that's within easy reach of Bowness and at the top of a 30 minute climb, great views of Lake Windermere.

This is a very nice walk that takes you from the centre of Bowness to the top of the fell. It’s steep in places so not suitable for the infirm, but can still be done by most people. Great views over Windermere and towards Barrow...More

A nice little walk not far from the centre of Bowness with an amazing view at the end. If you get the opportunity, I'd definitely recommend this walk. Plus, if it's a nice day, take a picnic!

We do this walk each time we come to the Lakes. It's a short sharp climb to get a fantastic view right down the length of the Lake. We were lucky enough to watch RAF planes skirt down the Lake on training exercise. Once you...More

Started this walk from the town, initially worried about the difficulty of this after reading some reviews. No problem for us, great views at the top but we would have preferred a longer walk! Will try a different and longer walk when visiting the area...More

You couldn't get to the top of the fell with any kind of pram. It's very steep and I don't think some could manage it on foot.
