An easy and mostly flat walk. There's a tiny section at Clappersgate where there's no footpath but walk over the bridge towards Brathay, along the river and take Bog Lane towards Skelwith Bridge. This walk takes in Grasmere, Rydal, Ambleside, Skelwith Bridge (Chesters by the River is a must!), Elterwater and then return over the hill to Grasmere. A perfect day. Just pray it doesn't rain too much!
