Haystacks (or Hay Stacks) is situated at the south-eastern end of the Borrowdale Valley and while it isn’t one of the taller peaks in the area, with an elevation of 597m, it’s still one of the most popular, with almost a million annual Google searches and it was described by Wordsworth as "one of the pleasantest of foot-passes".

Green Gable, although often used by walkers to traverse and reach Great Gable, this fell stands at 801 metres but its own summit has incredible views of Scafell Pike, Buttermere and Gable Crag, a well worth scramble.

Windermere is perhaps the most iconic lake in the Lake District (as well as the largest in England) and the village of Bowness-on-Windermere on its shores is a popular tourist honeypot. Walks around the lake offer views of the many surrounding mountains and one of the best and easiest ways to catch an elevated glimpse of the lake itself is from nearby Orrest Head.

2. Ullswater

The Ullswater Way is a 20-mile route around the lake, which can include boat or bus journeys.

A section of the way, Glencoyne Woods, inspired William Wordsworth’s famous poem Daffodils.
