Helvellyn -  England’s third highest mountain.


Helvellyn is the third highest mountain in the Lake District, standing at 950 Metres (3,117 ft). The only higher mountains are Scafell Pike and Scafell. It is a relatively easier ascent than both of these and more accessible, and is therefore probably the most climbed and walked of all the fells in the Lake District. Helvellyn has a great range of camping and caravan sites as well as a great selection of attractions and things to do in the area. Check out the key information on the right and then explore the camping and caravanning sites near Helvellyn listed below.

Helvellyn Ascents


Helvellyn can be reached from the west (Thirlmere) and the east ((Ullswater). The most popular route is the ascent from either Glenridding or Patterdale, the standard route is to climb to “hole in the wall”, and then walk along Striding Edge, the spectacular ridge walk (there is a lower path which is recommended in bad conditions). Having successfully negotiated this it is a quick scramble to the summit, which is surprisingly flat, but on a good day offers truly spectacular views across towards the North Sea in the west, and back across the Ullswater and the Lakes in the East. Then it’s a descent down Swirral edge, to Red Tarn, and either down to Glenridding or Patterdale.



On a beautiful clear summers day it is an uplifting walk that can be undertaken with care by most reasonably fit individuals. However the weather can turn suddenly, and in poor conditions Striding Edge especially can be treacherous and potentially lethal. One rule of thumb often used is if you can see the summit of Helvellyn itself from Hole in the Wall then give it a go, if not then think twice! Always check the Helvellyn weather.
