If you are not used to fell walking, this could be slightly more than you bargained for, but worth it!

If you are not used to fell walking, this could be slightly more than you bargained for, but worth it! We met several 'novices' who almost turned back, there is at least one false hope moment, where you expect the tarn to come into view, it is still some way off. With a little effort, this is a delightful walk.... More

This isn't too long a walk up and down and would suit a family with children. There's nothing to stop you swimming in the tarn except the cold! But probably not advisable for a solo traveller.

A straight forward walk up the side of Sour Milk Gill, lots to see as you climb. The path is very well kept and steps for some of the route, views are exceptional as you climb higher and get to the tarn. Gets very windy up there, so take a hat. Its a couple of hours form start to finish.

Lovely walk, weather was good and gave fab views! Steady walk up and stunning Tarn. Nice route back via coast to coast route and back into Grasmere. Well worth the effort and steps!

A nice steady walk to the tarn and back form the village. We completed it in a little over two hours and we took it steady. The waterfalls and the tarn are very picturesque and well worth the visit. A good walk if you don't want to be out all day but get a good lung full of country air.... More

This is a great walk from Grasmere, not to sure i would say its an easy walk. but in the right weather a refreshing walk. don't be taken in with a nice warm valley as you climb up the path to this lovely secluded tarn the temperature can be a lot cooler, so PLEASE make sure you have the right...

You will not be disappointed if you do this walk! Located just outside grasmere it's a relatively easy walk up to the tarn with a wonderful waterfall part way up! It looks spectacular whatever the season and I must have been there three times in the last year. So you can incorporate it into multiple different walks. If you fancied... More

My boyfriend and I did this walk following the instructions which I found online. A lot of people have labelled this 'easy' which I wouldn't necessarily agree with; however, I guess it would be classed easy for the seasoned hiker. As it is very much up hill it is rather difficult and we had to take regular breaks as our... More

Went for a walk on a mid January Saturday. Very snowy and icy. So atmospheric and few walkers. The waterfall all the way up is really beautiful.

steady walk uphill to a semi secluded tarn. Even when there are a few people about it remains a very peaceful place. The walk up follows a beck with some decent waterfalls and rock pools
