Key information: Martindale

    • Exceptionally pretty walking to the east of Ullswater.
    • Ranging from a delightful circuit from Howton behind the lakeside, to easy climbs to low fells (eg Hallin Fell) with lovely lakeside views, to an attack on the High Street ridge.
    • Howton to Patterdale: take a ferry to Howton from Glenridding and walk back through lower Martindale and beside Ullswater, claimed to be Lakeland's most beautiful lakeside walk (this is of course heavily contested). 7 miles. Gets crowded at peak times.
    • See our Lake District page for further photos and general and practical information.
