Walks that offer great views of the Lake District

Coniston Water, Coniston

Coniston Water is one of our favourite lakes in the Lake District, and is accessible from many areas.  Here is the perfect family picnic, based near the Bluebird Cafe in Coniston itself.

Waterside House Campsite & Pooley Bridge

We spent a couple of nights in the luxurious bell tent at Waterside House Campsite, just south of Pooley Bridge. We used the campsite as our base for our adventures, heading up to Angletarn Pikes on the first day and to Brotherswater on the second.   Not to mention swimming in Ullswater, right outside our tent and playing in the campsite playground with a magnificent backdrop!

Angletarn Pikes, Bannerdale

After camping on the shores of Ullswater, at Waterside House campsite, we were spoilt for choice with walks in the locality.  After much deliberation we decided to go for Angle Tarn and Angletarn Pikes, on Martindale Common, with the hope of seeing some of the red deer.
