Great Intake is a peak amongst the Coniston Fells on Lancashire, part of the Furness Fells in the Lake District. Its summit is 1,604 feet above sea level.

The fell stands in the very north of High Furness, overlooking Great Langdale and the Wrynose Pass to the north (which here separates Lancashire from Westmorland), separated by the Pierce How Beck from Holme Fell to the east, while to the southwest is Wetherlam and beyond it the Old Man of Coniston.
