Local Attractions … Just a Short Walk Away
A short drive away – Gummers Howe
A famous viewpoint opposite Lakeside Hotel, approximately 1 mile up Fell Foot Brow. Although just over 1,000ft in height, it commands marvellous views in every direction. The view north takes in the full length of Windermere, whilst if you look south you can follow the River Leven to the sea and Morecambe Bay. Look west to Black Combe, Coniston, Wetherlam, the Langdales, Helvellyn and Fairfield at the lake head, then the Kirkstone Gap, Kentmere and east to Ingleborough and the Pennines, with the Kent Estuary and the far side of Morecambe Bay. Look down to the steamers at Lakeside and the steam trains from Haverthwaite. Walk map and details available from Lakeside Hotel reception.
