Walks from the Door header
  • The Queen's Head, Hawkshead
    • Hawkshead Courthouse (1½ miles): A gentle beckside stroll to a medieval building with pretty views in and around the village.
    • Latterbarrow (4 miles): A rewarding hike to Hawkshead’s local fell, with fine views belying its moderate height.
    • Tarn Hows (5 miles): A gradual climb to a renowned beauty spot.
    • Windermere (6¾ miles): Beautiful walking alongside the largest natural lake in England, with a lofty wooded return.
  • The Mill Inn, Mungrisdale
    • Bowscale & Mosedale (3¼ miles): A virtually level farmland and mossland stroll through two pretty Lakeland hamlets with views of Carrock Fell and beyond.
    • Souther Fell (5½ miles): The broad ridge of Souther Fell gives excellent views of Blencathra and more distantly over the Vale of Eden to the North Pennines.
    • Blencathra (7¾ miles): This route follows some of the easier routes on this iconic fell; the still-considerable effort is rewarded with dramatic mountain views.
  • The Queens Head Hotel, Troutbeck
    • The Tongue (6¾ miles): A figure-of-eight route which, with only moderate climbing, gives superb views to Windermere.
    • Wansfell Pike and Ambleside (7 miles): Fantastic views over Windermere, a sylvan waterfall, and a gentler woodland return via the village.
    • High Street and Ill Bell (9½/13 miles): A hard fell walk up the valley of Trout Beck to High Street, returning via the Ill Bell ridge.
