Haweswater and Martindale

  • Tucked away to the east, Haweswater is a very solitary place.

    The rough fellsides and crags are home to the only golden eagle in England. A herd of majestic red deer also live in the valley, roaming the steep sides of Riggindale.

  • Martindale is another of those far flung places that not many people know about.

    The handsome little chapel is at the head of the valley.


  • The Ullswater steamer sails to Howtown, one of the best ways to reach Martindale.

    There are some lovely walks here from diminutive Hallin Fell to craggy Steel Knotts.

  • At the far end of Ullswater you can trace the old Roman road between Penrith and Ambleside.

    On Askham Fell you can see the Cockpit, an ancient stone circle.

  • Angle Tarn is quite a hike from Patterdale or Martindale but the picturesque setting makes it all worthwhile.
