Join the walk from the center of Bowness (head to the Royal Oak pub and keep walking uphill right to the top of the road, you'll see a gate to go through with signposts) an easy walk will take you up past Post Knott (not obvious but you're there when you see the stone bench!) and then on to Brant Fell. Gorgeous views!

This walk is easy to find at the top of Brantfell Road. The first part of the walk is uphill naturally, but is fine for most able-bodied people, not too strenuous. The walk is well signposted at the beginning but once you are nearing the top the walk opens out to a larger area where there are several trails to choose from. This isn't a problem, because it is not such a large area and it is difficult to get lost. There are some photo opportunities at the top with lovely views of the lake. An easy walk for the novices like us.

Great and easy walk to work off some calories and get some fresh air. Beautiful views and takes circa 1.15 hours

The walk up to Post-Knott and then to Brant fell was enjoyable despite the rainy and cold weather. It gets quite windy after post-knott but the views from the top are splendid.
