5 miles, Good views over Grasmere & Rydal. Combine with visits to dove cottage & Rydal mount for a full day out. In Grasmere, stock up on the famous Grasmere gingerbread, and visit the Heaton Cooper studio for paintings of the area.

Walk round Loughrigg
Our recommendation for a low level walk in the area, start Ambleside Church.
Start point Bowness, 5 miles. This walk takes you to two viewpoints over Windermere and the surrounding Biskey Howe and School Knott, and returns on the route of the Dales way, which finishes at Bowness.
