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.

We walked here from Hawkshead last July 2013, the walk is steep in places, but is well worth it to see the views, it took us 2 1/2 hrs to do a 5 mile round trip.
We would definitely do the walk again.

We walked up from the Tom Gill car park alongside the Gill and around Tarn Hows. It was a lovely walk and very peaceful.

Tarn how's is just a fantastic place to walk and take great photos. The national trust have done a truely excellent job of making a walk way around the lakes so everyone can enjoy it. If taking photos make sure you memory card is fairly empty as it soon will be full as so many different views are as they say just around the corner and don't forget to browse of the path there are many hidden gems to find like the reflecting lake by an old wooden building. Just enjoy your day

We were recommended to go here from our bed & breakfast. Loads of great reviews from everyone we talked too, however no one seemed to know the way. Took us awhile to find it, but once we did - so worth it!

Lovely hot day - a good spot for gentle walking. Route round the lake is well surfaced. Pricey NT car park but we walked here
