Sandwick Footpath to Howtown
The footpath that we followed for this walk is part of the Ullswater Way and is clearly signposted throughout. You are able to join the Ullswater way at multiple places and walk for as long as you would like. On this occasion we parked at Sandwick, postcode CA11 0JS, and followed the footpath from Sandwick to Howtown.
For those who have already completed a few of our walks you will know that parking this side of the Lake District can sometimes be difficult and so I would recommend getting there early! Today the weather was very cold, we were one of the only ones on the path, so we managed to park our car, off road, very close to the start of the footpath.
We completed a two mile out and back route, turning back on ourselves when the little ones were starting to get tired. When you begin the walk at Sandwick you can’t miss the sign for Howtown, go through a few gates and you will reach Hallinhag Wood. Here you will soon see the Ullswater Way signposts, follow these and you can’t get lost.
