Orrest Head, Windermere

The Lake District is known for its beautiful walks, but you don’t have to be an experienced hiker to enjoy the best views. You can take a short and simple walk up Orrest Head hill for an amazing viewpoint over the southern lakes.

This is the perfect walk if you have young children or older relatives who tire easily as you can enjoy the landscape with minimal effort. It consists of a small path leading to a gate followed by some steps to reach the summit. The walk only takes about 20 minutes and is well worth it.

Experienced hill walkers should stop at Orrest Head for the magnificent views on offer too. At the peak, you’ll notice a handy view indicator that shows you the various landmarks on the skyline. The view is excellent whichever way you look; the coast appears to the south with and you glimpse crags and lakes in all other directions.
