A 6 mile circular walk close to the small village of Hartsop in the Lake District, Cumbria. The route heads away from the village, climbing to cross the footbridge over Hayeswater Gill and on to reach the foot of Hayeswater, before turning to climb up to Satura Crag, Angle Tarn and a scramble up to Angletarn Pikes for some superb views. Nearby is The Nab which is home to the oldest herd of red deer in England, and you will have a good chance of seeing deer in the distance or hearing stags roar. The descent heads to Boredale Hause, with lovely views of Ullswater and then turns south to head back to the unspoilt village of Hartsop.

This is a fairly challenging walk, climbing from around 150 metres above sea level to 570 metres above sea level and including a short scramble up to the viewpoint of Angletarn Pikes. The weather can close in quickly, so ensure you are suitably prepared. It follows a mixture of stone tracks, stone paths and grass paths through the open moorland. You will need to negotiate gates, footbridges and a couple of rocky sections, and you will be sharing the paths with free-roaming sheep and some of the early pastures may be holding cattle. Allow 3 hours.

Hartsop lies in the Patterdale Valley, just off the A592 and about 10 miles north of Windermere. The walk begins in the small car park at the far end of Hartsop. Heading north on the A592, turn right on the small lane signed to Hartsop and follow this leading you between the pretty stone houses. When the tarmac ends, keep ahead on the stone track and you will reach the car park on your right. Approximate post code CA11 0NY.

From the parking area, follow the track heading away from the village, steadily uphill past some sheep pens. You will see Pasture Beck running down to your right. The track leads you past a pretty old barn (pictured from above), which looks as though it was planted rather than built. Stay on the track, taking the right-branch at the cattle grid, which crosses Hayeswater Gill and then climbs between pastures with the gill to your left. You will eventually reach a wooden footbridge over Hayeswater Gill on your left.

Cross the footbridge over Hayeswater Gill and follow the path as it swings right towards the foot of Hayeswater, before bearing left to climb up towards the ridge. You will reach a T-junction with the stone path on the ridge.

Turn left and follow the improved stone path leading you along the ridge. Remember to keep your eyes peeled and ears pricked for the sounds and sights of red deer in the distance. The path leads you to the rocky prominence of Satura Crag, where you will have lovely views. Look out for the lovely small tarn just below the crag.

Stay on the ridge path winding ahead, with a ruined stone wall on your left and then passing through an old gateway gap in the wall ahead. Continue along the ridge and this will lead you to Angle Tarn on your left.

The path passes above Angel Tarn. Just beyond the tarn, it is worth making a short scramble ascent up to your right to reach Angletarn Pikes. From this rocky summit you will have lovely views of Brothers Water below in the distance as well as an overhead view of Angle Tarn.

When you have finished at this rocky summit, return down to the ridge path and turn right to continue along it. The path leads you in the direction of Place Fell. You will have more views of Brothers Water as you pass the sunken course of Dubhow Beck running down to your left.

Continue on the ridge path until you approach Boredale Hause and reach an obvious fork, giving a choice of two paths (pictured). The path ahead leads to Patterdale, but you need to fork off left here to head south.

The path swings left and descends steadily into Deepdale. If you look behind you will have a lovely view of Ullswater. Further down you will pass by a lovely old green bench and a couple of old barns.

Follow the main track ahead and then fork left (the higher of the two paths that lead back to Hartsop), crossing a footbridge over Angletarn Beck and following the stone track above the village. Stay with the track as it leads you directly back to the village. Turn left to reach the car park, where the walk began.
