“Nice round walk”
Reviewed 4 February 2012

This is great little walk away from the main crowds. We regularly do this short, level walk when visiting the Lake District. The car park is National Trust and therefore there is a small fee for non-members. From here the well surfaced path follows near to the waters shore in a loop walk.
