Lovely place to explore in all weathers. Personally in some areas I’d say the route can be demanding so not quite easy, however it is a recommended place. Peaceful and the views are on point. There’s always new places to explore on the trail and the local pubs for a refreshment afterwards make the experience that little more spot on.

Beautiful walk around this very pretty area. Unfortunately the views on the moors were under fog so visibility was poor. There were some rocky paths and slight climbs but not too strenuous. Would recommend and will be back when the sun is shining ☀️

lovely walk. I would say it's more of a medium trail than easy with. it recorded 5.06 miles around

Fantastic views and a decent hike, few steep hills but was enough places to stop and rest. Absolutely idyllic!

amazing views ♥️ my favourite place.

Absolutely lovely walk. A mixture of of terrain, from footpaths to rocky inclines. the views are just absolutely stunning. Worth a trip. Note the weather was gorgeous when I went and because of that the car parks where really full.

Good walk, slight hills and rocky in places. Not very challenging but nice views and a nice pub at the end

2 adults and 2 kids with 2 dogs. Beautiful open spaces, plenty to look at and the stream/rocks/cliffs were great for exploring. We spent so long at the water part that making the rest of the walk wasn't easy for myself. Definitely need energy snacks and drinks in case you stop for a rest somewhere or even an explore. Can't wait to to another day.

Really enjoyed this walk, some beautiful scenery and a nice easy route to follow for beginners. We took our children aged 6 and 3 and they managed ( a little help for the 3 year old) to get around and loved it.

Really good walk for me and my Patterdale. Only issue I had that the only bin I came across was in the Car park and the Car park gets very very busy on a Sunday morning so I would recommend parking further away and walking!

Did this with my 6 year old on a snowy Saturday afternoon... He loved it and managed it easily enough (he had wanted to take his bike - it’s not kids bike suitable imo) Really nice loop walk, nice round the reservoir, then up a bit of a climb into the fields and back round Definitely one to do again in the none snowy weather and see the views Loved it!

Just started getting into hiking and walking and decided to try this route. Very good, yeah first time going up that stoney hill path can take your breath away but that's just me being a beginner and unfit. Really beautiful views. Definitely coming back.
