The most beautiful landscape ever. The weather was kind to us but I think that even in a rainy day it would still be stunning.

Great walk to blow away the cobwebs, moderately steep but can be up in 30 minutes to take in the wonderful views of Ullswater. Restored monument at the top; can be seen from the Ullswater steamers on a clear day.

You can go to the top of Hallin Fell or walk round it with beautiful views of Ullswater on either walk. This is well worth a walk.

We often have a little stroll to the top of Hallin Fell. Easy walk short uphill with a glorious view of Ullswater at the top. Easy to park near the Church of St Peter Martindale.
