Great walk with fabulous weather - very easy walking as mostly flat and the ducklings and goslings were great to see. The scenery around the lake is lovely especially as it wasn't raining !!

A pretty lake, you cannot get right down to the shore most of it. But at the southern end there is a beach, and also a half mile or so of path along the lake. Also at the southern end you can walk up the trails to higher elevation to get a great view back over the lake to the... More

I visited on a very sunny, warm, May evening following a cheeky 17 mile walk up a few hills. Decided a quick 10K was in order so ran round both lakes. The coffin bit is rather close to the road but the rest is a lovely run / walk. Recommended.

I'm a middle aged 15-20 cigarettes a day smoker with a small beer belly and I was able to do this walk with relative ease. If I was able to do it, then most of you should be able to as well. Starting from the National Trust shop in Grasmere, the full route should take 2-2.5 hours. The walk around... More

A wonderful venue for those with limited mobility. Beautiful views, good underfoot conditions for my mobility scooter and a thoroughly perfect venue, particularly when combined with neighbouring Ryder Water. A full "round" of Grasmere is not possible on a mobility scooter, however this does not detract from its beauty and charm. Fabulous.

This was our last walk during our mini-break in the lakes and we decided to follow easy footpaths as our poor basset hound had never walked so much in her life! So we parked the car at White Moss car park and let the signs lead us to the banks of Lake Grasmere. There are a few inclines in this... More

I walked around about half of the lake after coming over Loughrigg Fell from Ambleside. I followed a path coming off Loughrigg Terrace, then eventually along the road and into Grasmere. A beautiful lake, especially from on high looking down.
