Holme Fell, in particular, is a fell with plenty of interest. All, in all, these fells combine well to give a good, short, day's hill walking.
10 Kms (6 miles) 610 m (2000') for the two.

Off to the Lakes this weekend and was thinking of walking Holme Fell from Hodge Close as a quick walk, I have noticed on a few reports from this hill there is sometimes cows present. I am always very cautious around them, can you tell me if they were there last week?
No cows last week. Several "cow pats" though, but if you are going straight up from the tarn I think you're less likely to see them than approaching the fell from the north.

You're right, robbed myself quite a bit. They're about 300m each, but Holme was my favourite by far the way I walked it. Saw a lot of the fell that way. Straight up and down from the tarn would have been much quicker and simpler, but the "circular" route and the traverse of the ridge was worthy of much higher fells. I'll edit my entry a.s.a.p.
