Been up to Hampsfell a few times and always try and get up there whilst staying in the lakes. Not particularly high in Lakeland terms but you are still rewarded for little effort. I did a circular walk from Cartmel over Hampsfell, through Grange and...More

You get magnificent 360 views from the hospice but the walk to it is not for the faint hearted. We walked from Cartmel and some of the land was particularly wet and boggy due to the recent rain. You certainly need walking boots /shoes for...More

We visited this magical place yesterday - it was a beautiful and golden, late summer afternoon. We parked up by the fell golf club and set out on our walk - my husband, little dachshund and myself. In places, the incline of the fell is...More
