To the south of Ullswater, and dividing the valleys of Boredale and Bannerdale, Beda Fell stands at an elevation of 509 m (1,670 ft) and has a prominence of around 60 m (197 ft). Its parent peak is Angletarn Pikes and it is listed as a Wainwright. The summit is named Beda Head and stands high above Martindale at the end of a long ridge connecting to Angletarn Pikes to the south west. It is marked with a small cairn, from where the higher peaks in the areas can be seen, although the valleys below are obscured by the wideness of the ridge. The obvious route to the summit is straight up the ridge from the road below.
