Great place for a family walk, beautiful scenery and you can make it an easy or hard walk depending on the route you take. Lovely to finish your walk at Howtown Cafe for a delicious lunch or afternoon tea.

Whilst Hallin Fell is a steep climb it doesn’t take long and affords great views in both directions along Ullswater. A great vantage point. Worth the effort.

Impromptu visit here and well worth it. Tough little climb for the kids. Park at the church for free and up you go.

The walk up is hard work, for me anyway, although you are rewarded by the best views in Ullswater. We did the walk late afternoon / evening and were the only walkers. Take care walking down when it has been raining. We loved it!!!

good easy walking around Hallin fell although the path in the trees has a lot of tree roots showing making the path a little difficult

Great option for a hill walk when in the Ullswater Lake area. Steep ascent but well worth the effort for wonderful views north and south over the Lake. We climbed Hallin as part of our walk from Glenridding to Howtown (Ullswater Way)........excellent walk and finished...More

Take the narrow and often busy Howtown road from Pooley Bridge and cross the final cattle grid by the steamer pier to climb the twisty and exciting narrow road up to Howtown Church. Even on a busy bank holiday there is ample parking and from...More

You can park by Martindale church (free but not a huge car park) or in Pooley/Glenridding/Aira force and then take one of the steamers to Howtown to walk up Hallin Fell - it's practically a 360 panorama from the top, well... More
