Owner description: Stunning Tarn Hows offers an accessible circular (1¾ miles) walk through beautiful countryside with majestic mountain views. A great place to walk and picnic, or to begin your wider Lake District countryside adventure. There are also rare Belted Galloway cattle and sturdy Herdwick sheep grazing by the tarn. There is a mobility scooter available for use for those who are less able to get around the Tarn.

I went to Tarn Hows yesterday, first time in many years. It is more beautiful than I had remembered. Paths are easy to follow and you can walk down to Yew Tree Tarn and pass lovely waterfalls. No problems for dogs on or off leads.
Fantastic burgers at the top car park - home made - pork, lamb or beef.
Great place to visit.

My husband took several photos of this beautiful place. The sun was shining and there were smatterings of snow here and there. It was gorgeous; an incredibly beautiful spot, with easy and accessible, well maintained paths. We are delighted to have visited such a lovely place.

Pretty and easy walk. Saw a deer on our evening stroll! Highly recommend it. Good clear paths and you see waterfalls if you park in the lower National Trust Car Park.
