About Gummers How

Gummers How hill is situated at the southern end of Lake windermere, right behind our park. It is not as well known as other mountains in the area, but it’s well worth checking out during your stay. From the peak, walkers can enjoy 360 degree views across the mountainous scenery. Take a moment to have your picture with the pillar of stones (cairn) at the top of the hill.

We highly recommend guests try the scenic walk at least once during a stay at Park Cliffe Caravan and Camping site.  The public footpath is accessed via the children’s play area and the walk can easily be completed in an afternoon. Most walkers take around and hour and a half at a steady speed. Along the route there is a range of scenery to take in, including open fields, woodland and a pretty stream.

Gummers How can also be accessed from the Gummers How car park near Fell Foot Park. From here it only takes 20 minutes to reach the top, making it an excellent option for visitors with kids. The walk is enjoyable for all ages and the ascent is slow and steady. On the way down there are some fairly steep stone steps that should be navigated with ease.
