When I was a newcomer to fell walking, it must have been two or three years before I decided to pay Blake Fell a visit or indeed any of this little group of Loweswater fells. It wasn't intentional; there just always seemed to be somewhere else waiting to be discovered or perhaps revisited. Once I'd been here however, I quickly realised what a treat I'd been denying myself. It may not be anywhere near as grand as many other fells in the Lake District, but if walked on its own, it offers you the opportunity of a nice quiet couple of hours on the fells with surprisingly good views.
For me personally, Blake Fell is quite close to home, and as a result, is somewhere I can nip across to on a summer evening walk or perhaps for a quick walk when time in short supply.
Of course none of the above means that Blake Fell couldn't easily be included in a much longer outing; quite the contrary in fact. Burnbank Fell, Carling Knott, Gavel Fell and even Hen Comb and Mellbreak are all within reasonable distance. And to state the obvious, the number of different routes you could devise around these fells would keep in walks for a heck of a long time.
