Parked at White Moss Common and took the walk up to Lothrigg Terrace. The very best way to view this gem. Simply beautiful. A must see attraction.

Very picturesque walk around the lake. Easy, secure footing, flat, lots to see and enjoy on the walk. Back to Grasmere to enjoy a well deserved ice-cream!

The lake as usual was beautiful and rather low for the time of year due a spell of excellent weather. The shores were also very clean.

Yes most of the path is accessible. I remember we had to cross a shallow stream on the beach bit but if you're ok with that it will be ok. There is a path through some woods which was decking type but you may need to carry... More

The Vale Rydal circular cycle route is about 12 miles, Grassmere also suitable. Classed for mountain bikes as it does have areas of rougher terrain. The area has gates to open and allow access. Some areas are steep. And... More
