“Beautiful and atmospheric”
Reviewed April 8, 2011

This is a lovely walk, around 2 miles long and fairly flat. It is ideal with younger children - we have done this walk with a pushchair and a toddler.

Beautiful in autumn and one of my favourite places in the Lakes.

“Excellent Introduction for Young Walkers”
Reviewed November 6, 2009

Tarn Hows is an excellent introduction to lakeland walking for young children and the novice hiker. A leisurely walk around the lake will take no more than two hours with good gently undulating paths. There is a large car park with excellent toilet facilities and a small visitors centre, be warned it gets extremely busy, best to arrive early at weekends and school holidays if the weather is good.
