Ullswater – Stunning Views And Nature’s Beauty

When the weather forecast told me it was going to be a glorious day it was time to pack a lunch, a flask of coffee and head out. Off to Ullswater I went for a typical, time-to-clear-the-head hike. First stop: Glenridding to catch the Ullswater Steamer to Howtown. The boat trip is a lovely treat and great sign that this is going to be a beautiful day. Wonderful scenery all around, just sit back and enjoy.

Then we reach Howtown Bay and it’s time to get off board and start my 7 miles walk (11 km) hike back to Glenridding. Surrounded by lots of green scenery and blue skies, a perfect day lies ahead… I’ve never been on this side of the lake before and I’m amazed by all of nature’s beauty and the stunning views. The paths are clear and well kept, which makes this a comfortable and not too hard walk. There’s lots of beautiful spots where you can just sit down, enjoy your lunch and take in the beauty of Ullswater and its surroundings.

There’s hidden little streams, beautiful woods, flowers and birds guiding you along the way. This is definitely a walk I would do again, there’s so much variety, that the next time it will probably be a whole different walk…  I might be back in autumn to try to spot a red deer….

    Lovely. Makes me feel very nostalgic. My favorite lake. I can distinctly remember my first glimpse of it around 50 years ago now, but a sharp memory because of the incredible beauty!

    Come back & do the Howtown walk in Autumn. And again in Winter. It is a walk you can do again & again it changes that much through the seasons. Brilliant walk.
