“Absolute Delight”
Review of Hallin Fell

Reviewed 4 April 2018

Just returned from a week touring the lakes and this was on my to do list. We didn't really know what was the best way to tackle this after reading many reviews on here. We were going to start from the church at Martindale on the 30 min climb straight up but what we actually ended up doing was getting the Ullswater steamer from Pooley bridge ( where we were staying at a nearby campsite) and disembarking at Howton which then took you straight on the path up and around to the top of Hallin Fell. So glad we did, it was fantastic. The steamer was a joy across the lake and the climb wasn't too bad as we are not the fittest of folk!!!!. We took our time and the views were amazing. It takes longer to get to the top but so glad we done it this way as we could see half way up where the path from the church meets and yes its a lot quicker but if you are in no rush then start at Howtown, you wont be dissapointed.

Hallin Fell at the edge of Martindale is a delight,especially when you park next to St Peters church.A quick amble up the side of the Fell wives way to delightful views of the fells surrounding Ullswater.A huge summit cairn gives views of Pooley Bridge and Dunmallard Hil to the North, Little and Great Mell fells together with Gowbarrow across the water and Sheffield Pike and the Dodds range to the South West.The South gives views of Place Fell,Beda Fell and further around Pikawassa and the skyline of Wether And Loadpot hills.

Well worth a small hike to the top for a great view of Ullswater Lake part of the Howtown to Patterdale walk a little detour is well worth it.

well worth the walk for the spectacular views of ullswater. Park opposite St. Peter’s church in Martindale and walk straight up the hill. I wouldn’t advise the walk for very young children or people with poor mobility as it does get a bit steep in places.

A walk that most people can manage, yet be rewarded with fantastic views. Steep but manageable from the church.
