Staying at Glenthorne Guest House on Easedale Lane this has been our favourite introductory walk to the Lake District for our different sets of grandchildren.

Started in Grasmere village and did a circular route to Easedale Tarn with our children (7 and 3). Everyone loved it and it was perfectly doable for the younger ones.

Easy walk from Grasmere, but very rewarding scenery once you reach the Tarn and good photo opportunities by the river on the way.

A fairly comfortable walk with fantastic views. The reward of reaching the Tarn at the top is well worth it!

This is a good starter walk after going round Grasmere and Rydal Water. Lovely views and on a fine day rewarded with a paddle in cool waters! it also has the advantage of being very easy to find with signd from the centre of Grasmere near the Youth Hostel.

This was lovely walk up to Easedale Tarn. Be warned if you try to walk around the Tarn, then it a little difficult to follow the path, but worth it.
