Local Walks

We are really well placed when it comes to walking and not only do we have a number of walks available from the door and we are located within easy reach of Keswick, Ullswater and Caldbeck, which all offer a great range of walking routes to suit all abilities.

Bowscale Tarn (see pictures), takes about 3 hours to walk the round trip to one of the lesser known tarns in the area. Small map provided in the guest information folder. In the summer, the Mosedale Quaker Meetinghouse opens up as a coffee shop, selling homemade soups teas & cakes for a local charity. Check with JoAnne for opening times.

Other local walks include Carrock Fell, Mungrisdale Common, Bannerdale Crags, Souther Fell and Bowscale Fell. Carrock Fell is accessed directly from the back of Mosedale End Farm. Blencathra is our closest "major" Lakeland fell which is approximately 5 miles away. 

Further Afield

There are 214 Wainwright peaks and a great number of those can be found near to Keswick and Ullswater, both of which are approximately a 20-minute drive from the farm.

These famous fells include: Skiddaw, Helvellyn, Catbells, Fleetwith Pike, Haystacks, Walla Crag, Latrigg and Dodd, just to name a few.

Below you will find an interactive guide to walking routes in the Lake District.

Here are just a few of my must-see & do's while staying at Mosedale End Farm

Meet the Alpaca’s at Base Camp North. Activities involve hand feed of the girls & spending time to getting to know the herd and learning lots. New babies can be seen in late spring/early summer.

Also, Farm shop selling loads of local goodies & a fabulous café for your lunch.

Castlerigg Stone Circle is perhaps one of the most picturesque in Brittan with panoramic views of the Fell in the background. It’s an easy stop-off if you are visiting the town of Keswick on Derwent. 

Stand Up Paddle Boarding is by far the best way to have fun on a lake and do able by any age. Try Derwent Marina for Paddle Boarding, Kayaking, Canoeing, Rowing or Pedalo hire. 

Visit the beautifully renovated old Victorian farmstead on the shore of Bassenthwaite Lake, Home of the Lake District Distillery. Tours & shop available as well as a popular Bistro.

The Theatre by the lake offers an ever-changing program & we are pleased to be able to offer you a discount code should you wish to go. Please ask JoAnne for details.

Aira Force is a stunning waterfall that can produce rainbows in the spray if the sun & light are right. Park in the National Trust car park & walk up through the woods keeping an eye out for the Red Squirrels.

Catch the Ullswater Steamer from the Piper at Aira for a beautiful view of the fells from the lake. Other pipers are available from Pooley Bridge or Glenridding.

Ghyll Scrambling is a wet decent of a Lakeland Mountain stream, testing your nerve to see if you can slide down water falls & jump off rocks into pools with names like The Washing Machine. 

Lowther Castle is 1 of the most intriguing visitor attractions in the county. Dramatic ruins rich in history are the magnificent backdrop for the huge gardens.

Via Ferrata Extreme is a 3 hour adrenaline packed experience. You will climb vertical ladders, overhang descents, a Burma bridge and to finish a short scramble to reach one of the finest views the Lake District has to offer.

Ullswater is a great place to spend some time. It features islands, bays & beaches, and lots of scenery.
The ethos on the trips is always the same. Enjoy the views, have a chat, pass on a bit of knowledge and learn from people looking for a similar experience.
