"A simple and enjoyable walk, which ought to be, but isn't, a popular ramble for Cockermouth folk."
A Wainwright

The heather covered summit of Ling Fell above the tranquil valley of Wythop, a gentle dome with no connecting fells Ling Fell makes a good short walk and is popular with local dog walkers.

Ling Fell can be combined with a walk around the beautiful Wythop Valley and even combined with the nearby Sale Fell to make a circuit of Wythop.

The views from Ling Fell are good, with views over Wythop and great views west over Cockermouth towards the coast.
