The Ullswater Way

The Ullswater Way

The Ullswater Way is a 20-mile walking route around Ullswater. The route can be walked in either direction and from any starting point. Why not walk the route in shorter sections, using an open top bus or steamer to start your journey!



 

Lowther Castle Loop 

Try the latest addition to the Ullswater Way. From Lowther Castle, the circular 7.5 mile route follows the banks of the Lowther river, through the hamlet of Helton and then up to Askham Fell with its panoramic views, before returning through the charming village of Askham.

 Ullswater Way Dalemain Loop

Following the fantastic success of the Ullswater Way, an additional 5 mile circular loop has been developed to enable people to link from the Ullswater way to Dalemain Mansion with its Garden and Tea Rooms and Dacre village with its ancient church and traditional pub.

The Loop is well signposted and an illustrated account of the walk can also be found in the Official Guide to the Ullswater Way, available in businesses around the Ullswater Way, with £1 for every copy sold donated to the National Park to help maintain the route.
