Walking in the Ullswater Valley - Lake District National Park 

Walk 1 – From Pooley Bridge

Take a short walk around Dunmallard Hill, there is a fantastic vantage point at the top and look out for red squirrels! Just a ten minute stroll to Pooley Bridge village with its array of tea rooms, gift shops, pubs and inns, post office and the Ullswater Steamers Pier. 

Walk 2 – Pooley Bridge to Howtown

Walk to the village and follow the road to Roehead then follow the footpath on up to the Stone Circle and down the side of the fell to Howtown Pier. There is a low level option on this route (6 miles/9km) Moor Divock is rich in antiquities dating to the Early Bronze Age. The Cockpit is the largest of several monuments found on the moor with a diameter of 25m. Many of the stones are now fallen but the tallest of those stones still upright are just under a metre.
