Create an itinerary including Mellbreak
Mellbreak is a hill in the Western part of the English Lake District. Despite being surrounded on all sides by higher fells (the Loweswater Fells, the High Stile Ridge and the Grasmoor Group), it stands in isolation. It is surrounded on three sides by a "moat" of deep marshy land, and on the east side by the lake of Crummock Water. The fell forms a partnership with the lake, running parallel to it, falling sheer into it, and regularly providing the backdrop for pictures of it.

  • Great walk. Steep climb up the screes and quite boggy and wet. Rewarded with stunning views 😍
  • REALLY windy - such a let down. Had to walk to WHOLE way up to the top???!! Also - too many sheep. Disappointed. Will not be coming back.
