Daffodil with path nameUllswater Way

32 km / 20 miles

Cumbria
The Ullswater Way is a promoted waymarked walking route, using existing public rights of way and quiet roads, which circumnavigates Ullswater aimed at encouraging walkers to enjoy the valley, appreciate the spectacular scenery and support local businesses. The lake has hitherto lacked a promoted route around it.

The Lake District was affected by floods late in 2015, with Patterdale and Pooley Bridge especially suffering and tourism diminished as a result. The trail is a local initiative to attract walkers; new gates and waymarks have been added. There is also a heritage trail with artworks including the Wainwright Sitting Stone and the Dorothy Gate.

An illustrated booklet is available, see below, describing the main route along with two alternatives: one around Gowbarrow Park and another which keeps to the lakeside on the return to Pooley Bridge. A circular extension to the north of Pooley Bridge, taking in Dalemain House and Dacre, is also included.
