“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 29 August 2012

What a beautiful, picturesque place. I sat on the edge of the shore for a long time, soaking up the sunshine and the scenery. The great big mountain (which we have climbed) Blencathra dominates the lake, and it is just a wonderful, idyllic spot. Great for relaxing and for budding amateur photographers like myself. Visit it! Oh, and it's also the only true 'lake' in the Lake District!

“A beauty!”
Reviewed 28 August 2012

One of the Lakes with very little access, but outstanding views. Try to see it near to St Bega's church- another jewel of the area.

“Sunshine by the lakeside...”
Reviewed 25 August 2012

What more could one want? We didn't want to leave. A very special place to sit on the grass right by the water's edge in the stillness of the day. If we could have bottled it up and brought it home we would have done.
