“Rewarding Views”

Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 1 June 2018

A short but sometimes steep walk is rewarded with some lovely picture postcard views of lake Windermere and the distant mountains. It certainly blew the cobwebs off this two semi-fit fifty somethings. Be prepared to be stared at by wary sheep and to negotiate the mine field of their droppings near the top. But all in all, it's well worth an hour of your time.

Absolutely loved it! Did the walk because of other reviews and was well prepared for it, complete with a little picnic. The weather was beautiful and the panoramic view was worth the steep-ish (if one is not all that fit) walk. I also enjoyed freely walking among the sheep! It'll be helpful to have a good GPS app as it's possible to lose one's sense of direction (well I did, anyway!). I would do it again in a heartbeat!

This was a local walk when stopping in Bowness, with spectacular views over the whole of Lake Windermere.

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.
