The Lake District in the UK is home to the most fabulous walks with breathtaking scenery. However some people get just as much enjoyment from a leisurely walk in lowland areas. Some of the best of these are Ullswater walks.
Ullswater is the second largest lake in the Lake District and can offer some lovely lowland walks. So why not stay around Ullswater and take your pick from 6 of the best Ullswater walks listed below.
1. Glenridding to Howtown.
This is number 1 as it is one of the most beautiful Ullswater walks with stunning views of the Ullswater Valley and Helvellyn range. It is 7 miles long and will take about 3-4 hours. This Ullswater walk has a wavy path and is a little hilly but is a nice one. The difficulty is moderate to easy.
2. Aira force circular walk
Very nice short walk and was actually developed in Victorian times. This walk is in a woody area and leads to a wonderful waterfall. This is a walk to take your mum as its only 1 mile long and only takes an hour. Nice and easy.
3. Howtown to Pooley bridge Walk
This walk has great views across the lake and is moderately easy but longer – 6 miles. This walk will take you 3 hours to complete. Some parts are uphill and you need to watch out for boggy areas.
4. Lantys Tarn circular walk
This again is a nice short walk with stunning views of the Ullswater Valley. It is a 3 mile easy walk taking 1-2 hours. The good thing about this one is that it includes a boat trip which is an added extra!
5. Hallin Fell Circular Walk
This one is very similar in format to Lantys Tarn. Again, a very nice rewarding walk with great Ullswater Lake views. It is 3 miles long and takes 2 hours. This may take a little longer if you want to put in some climbing and visit the local churches.
6. Howtown to Glenridding
This is another beautiful walk with stunning views of the Ullswater Valley and Helvellyn range. This is a 7 mile walk taking roughly 4 hours in total. This walk has up and down hill stretches and some slightly rocky parts.
