lovely walk from Grasmere and don't let the fact it is popular put you off. Still plenty of places round the Tarn that you can have to yourself!!

I am an amateur walker, and this was my first time in the Lakes. Staying at Lancrigg hotel, meant this was a must do walk as from there it is an hour and a bit to ascend, and a little less back down, with half an hour or so just to admire it; it is quite steep in places and... More

Steepish climb for amateurs, with a goo path, but only an hour up and same back down - stunning views both up and down, and of course the tarn (small lake) at the top.

we stayed at the nearby Macdonald swan hotel who recommended this walk and gave us a map. we did a circular walk up to the Tarn. The way up was quiet an effort but with great views. when we got to the Tarn it was fantastic and we could have stayed for ages. several people were sitting with their feet... More

It's a good hike up from lancrigg. About 1.5 hours for the beginner. The walk down is quite difficult with loads of stepping stones. Also about 1.5 hours.

Great walk to be enjoyed by the whole family. Beautiful views, tranquil and to be enjoyed over and over again. The waterfall is well worth seeing and the reward at the top can be to enjoy your own packed lunch. Your reward afterwards one of the lovely tea rooms in Grasmere..

A peaceful spot, not too far from our hotel (Lancrigg). Stunning on a sunny day! Take your own packed lunch - apparently there was a tea room here 100 years ago...

No more than an hour walk from Grasmere, this gem of a tarn, framed by the rocky cliffs of Tarn Crag and Blea Rigg, is usually quiet even on the busiest of days. Just ramble to the north shore, spread out a rug and let time while away... The waterfall en route can also be spectacular in spate.

Set off from the centre of Grasmere and just follow the signs, we just bought a little paper route planner from the local shop and had no issues navigating to the Tarn.

We liked that it started right out of Grasmere where we were staying. The first section of the walk is easy. We had a pregnant lady with us and young children would manage too. Places to picnic. Great views of waterfall. It's a rocky path with some climbing after that up to the top of the waterfalls and then to... More
