  • We did a walk up here from Cartmel. It was fairly strenuous but nothing like a normal Lake District walk. The landscape is more gentle than the dizzy heights of the Lakes. Lovely views from this curious building and a terrific place to have lunch.
  • Stunning viewpoint! Well worth the moderate climb. We visited by walking through the woods, from Grange. Very peaceful walk, hardly a soul about. Once at the top, the view is full 360 degrees.
  • Hampsfell Hospice is a fascinating little building with outstanding 360 degree views of the Cumbian Fells and Morecambe Bay. There is ample parking in Grange Over Sands and any number of foot paths leading from there to the summit, well worth a visit.
  • Only a mile from where I live. Fantastic views over Morecambe Bay and into the rest of the Lake District.
  • Great view on all sides. Not an easy climb. Children in 8 would struggle.
