Starting Point Information Centre
Car park, opposite Patterdale Hotel

I think I'm correct in saying that the hotel actually owns the car park, so needless to say there is a charge. Thankfully this is a daily charge and if I'm honest it is well worth the cost when you consider the fantastic selection of walk that can be undertaken from this spot.

It does tend to fill up rather quickly though, and not only during the summer months.


Route Map

Crossing the bridge over Goldrill Beck just after the start of the walk.
I left home today intending to drive to Mardale Head for a walk in that area, but it was such a nice day I decided to have a walk up my favourite fell (Angletarn Pikes) instead.

Looking down to Patterdale, Glenridding and Ullswater.

The sheepfold at Boredale Hause. The fells behind are Arnison Crag, Birks, St Sunday Crag, Fairfield, Hart Crag and Dove Crag.

Looking back to Place Fell.

Brothers Water surrounded by Hartsop Dodd, Stony Cove Pike, Red Screes, Middle Dodd, Little Hart Crag, High Hartsop Dodd, Dove Crag and the Hartsop Above How ridge.

Angle Tarn, on a par with Sprinkling Tarn this is probably the most beautiful of all the high Lakeland tarns.

The way to Brock Crags.

Rather than head straight to Brock Crags I carried on a little way so I could get this view into Bannerdale while I sat for something to eat.

Brock Crags.

Heading to Hartsop down this very steep path below Brock Crags.

The start of the road / track back to Patterdale. A good hours walk through some lovely countryside.
