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

I've done this walk twice, once in a rainy November and once in sunny August/September and have enjoyed it just as much both times. The rain does seem to add something to the walk! The trail up from Grasmere is nothing strenuous and the views all the ways up are fantastic. The views at the top are spectacular and the... More

Leaving Grasmere opposite the green Easedale tarn is sign posted up a minor road. You soon leave the road onto a footpath on your left then rejoinder the road for a few hundred metres before crossing a bridge on your left and cross farmland . The path starts to climb gradually until you pass through the farmland where you follow... More

To reach the tarn, you should be well prepared. From Grasmere, follow the signs and walk the 2 miles or so, up the hill, until you are directed across a little ford, through a small wooded area, and see the stony path ahead. Even if you only make it this far, the view of the waterfall (Sourmilk Ghyll) in the... More
