The Rugged Howgill Fells

Nestled between the renowned Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks lies a hidden gem of Cumbria, England - the Howgill Fells. Often overshadowed by its more famous neighbours, the Howgills offer a retreat for outdoor enthusiasts seeking tranquillity amidst breath-taking landscapes.

Characterized by their gentle, grassy slopes and rounded contours, the Howgill Fells present an inviting terrain for walkers and hikers of all abilities. One can't help but be captivated by the stunning views that unfold across the countryside from vantage points scattered throughout the fells.

At the heart of the Howgills stands The Calf, the highest point in this range, reaching an elevation of 676 meters (2,218 feet) above sea level. Its summit rewards those who make the ascent with panoramic vistas that stretch as far as the eye can see.


One of the charms of exploring the Howgills is the abundance of paths and trails that crisscross the fells, offering a variety of routes for exploration. Whether you're a seasoned hiker or a leisurely stroller, there's something for everyone to discover amidst these rolling hills.
