The spectacular mountains (fells) are, undoubtedly, one of the Lake District’s biggest attractions, affording great views from their summits and offering a mixture of challenges from a gentle stroll to rock scrambling. Enjoy our Lake District guided walks, where a British Mountaineering Council Mountain Leader will safely guide you up some of our most enjoyable fells.
At Armathwaite Hall, we have picked out some of our favourite fell walks, including those away from the main tourist hubs that tend to be popular with the local residents. Some are easy, some are a challenge, and whilst many are suitable for beginners, all require a good level of fitness. Take a look at our favourites. If you would like to try an alternative, please let us know at the time of booking. We also offer a Via Ferrata & Mine Tour experience that combines more challenging routes known as ‘The Iron Way’.
If you enjoy your walk, why not capture it in style and learn to become a better photographer with our photography experience.

A lovely gentle stroll up to the top of Sale Fell, mostly on wide, grassy tracks. The wonderful views from the top stretch from Bassenthwaite Lake all the way to the Irish Sea. Sale Fell is a very short drive from Armathwaite Hall, so this one is great if you fancy a brief outing for a quick leg stretch. Summer evening walks are also available.

A fascinating walk along a disused railway line and beside the River Greta. The path then narrows and steepens and leads through the woods out onto the sheep grazed flanks of Latrigg. The summit of Latrigg offers the best views of any small hill in the Lake District. The decent takes you down towards the Cumbria Way and back into Keswick.
