Tips

Grasmere was once the home of William Wordsworth. You can visit two of his former homes, Dove Cottage and Rydal Mount. As you enter Grasmere from the south (Ambleside) direction you are on Stock Lane, a car park is on your right. Parking is also at the adjacent school at weekends and holidays. The first part is a 2 mile exploratory loop of the village returning to the car park before leaving again to visit Dove Cottage, then Rydal via the coffin road and returning via lakeside paths.

If stock Lane car park is full continue through the village towards Keswick and on Broadgate there is another car park on the right just before the playing fields.

Nice relaxing walk, clear paths all the way round, nothing too taxing.

WalkingGreat!

Great first walk, dog friendly, especially if they like water, lots of places to stop to take pictures and have a paddle. very enjoyable, not too hard. I think there was 3 inclines altogether

HikingGreat!

Very nice walk around the lakes. Can get quite busy with both cyclists and people walking. I would say it's an easy trail rather than moderate.

I would say this was an easy trail rather than moderate. Me and my 'non-runner' friend ran/walked this trail with our two dogs. Beautiful views. And a relatively easy route to follow (very easy if you actually look at tbe route as you are going but as we were running we tried not to). Mostly flat with a few short hills thrown in there. We only did the big loop and didn't add the little extra bit.
