We wanted a short walk local to Bowness and this walk was just the trick. Great views over the lake and countryside when you reach the top. You could either go back down the way you came or take a circular route back to Bowness...More

I took this easy walk up Brant Fell from Bowness to enjoy the views over the lake. The walk was easy and you definitely get a great view for such a short walk. Well worth the short effort to escape the crowds in Bowness.

Brant Fell is a hill in the English Lake District, with amazing views, fresh-cool air. Just a liitle walk from the town and worth the effort. We had a great moment with God's masterpiece.

After an interesting walk we climbed up Brant Fell. There are superb views of Windermere from the top and plenty of spots to have a picnic.

This was a highlight during a short stay over the Valentines, mid- February period and well worth the walk up from Bowness for views back down to the lake and as far as the Irish Sea, weather depending. The viewpoints of the lake from nearby...More

A nice walk with the pooch. This was steep in some places & as the weather had not been good previously, was a little muddy in some places. We got a good day for January & had a great view & although a bit frosty,...More

Is this walk suitable for a pram? City jogger with Big wheels so not a flimsy buggy type! X

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.
