Always a pleasure to see!

Hadn't visited the tarn for some time and it never fails to please. Not too difficult to get to and doesn't take too long to complete the round visit back to Grasmere.

Walk provides a variety of surfaces which may challenge the novice but with good footwear very enjoyable for the occasional walker in unspoiled area.

Walked up to Tarn on beautiful Autumn day. Great walk for people with little experience of walking. Very steep in some sections,but worth the effort for views.

If you're in doubt of a walk to do, I would definitely recommend this one. Not overly challenging for people who love walking and the small climb is rewarded with amazing views at the top. We were lucky to have incredible weather which really enhanced our day. The only downside was that as it was half term it was pretty... More

A walk that can be adjusted to most walkers. The path is varied, sometimes felt, sometimes going up a little, a few places a little steep. But plenty of opportunities to rest and enjoy the scenery - and the spectacular waterfall. Those too tired can stop at the top of the waterfall and still have a great walk. But the... More

The route is well signposted and has stunning waterfalls and views down to Grasmere across the fells. It is marked on some sites as a 6 mile easy walk however I don't think it is good for the elderly, disabled or for children as there are some very rocky, tricky sections and particularly when it rains it is slippy underfoot...

If you're looking for a challenge, Tarn Hows is not the walk for you! In comparison to the fells, this is a manicured landscape and yet very beautiful, so for a gentle stroll around the lakes on smooth paths (suitable for wheel chairs too) with stunning views at every turn, this is ideal. It's a photographer's paradise, especially as the... More

A great walk from Grasmere. It has wonderful views on the way there and back. When you reach the Tarn there are some great picnic spots. if A must if you are in Grasmere and you are a keen walker.

The Easdale Tarn is an easy walk from the centre of Grasmere. It covers some brilliant landscape and offers some of the most amazing vistas once you climb. The waterfalls are spectacular, especially after a rain period. We unfortunately couldn't cross the Tarn ford of rocks due to the water height, but I am sure it would be able to... More
