As many of our visitors come to the Lake District for a hiking holiday, we list below some of the classic mountain walks, with an approximate time from the start point from Park Cliffe by car, and brief general information about the route. Please refer to the relevant OS map for detailed planning. All times given are approximations – they will vary according to ability, conditions and traffic. We recommend you leave details of your route with someone, or at reception and that you check weather conditions before setting off. For all mountain walks, even in summer, we recommend that you have the following with you:
Scafell Pike (3206ft) The highest mountain in England.
While Scafell Pike has several paths, we recommend the ascent from Seatoller:
Via the corridor route, return via Esk Hause. Allow 6 hours walking.
Starting Point: Seathwaite (GR 235 122) limited parking along the road verge leading to the hamlet.

From Park Cliffe, take the A592 to Bowness on Windermere, and at the mini roundabout in Bowness, take first left to Ambleside. At the next roundabout, go left; continue through Ambleside and Grasmere to Keswick. From Keswick, take the B5289 in the direction of Rosthwaite, and park on the roadside leading to the hamlet of Seathwaite. It will take about 60 minutes from Park Cliffe by car to the start point.
