“Usually Summer swimming!”
Reviewed 6 December 2012

With most of the weed gone, our bonfire night swim with glow sticks was atmospheric & a great experience. A torch on the island to guide us out and a bonfire on the beach for the return. Offers of homemade cake & mulled wine on the beach....perfect.

Reviewed 14 November 2012

This wonderful walk is slightly off the beaten track and enjoys stunning views. Leisurely walk from Rydal to Grasmere and back.

“A very special lake”
Reviewed 11 November 2012

This is so beautiful! What stunning views of Grasmere walking up from Whitemoss. The car park fee is far too much with not enough choice of stay. Either too long or too short. It used to be National Trust which meant as a member ths car park was free. Now this has changed. Why? I ask. The walk is still wonderful though and the circular walk around the lake is wonderful. There are toilets as well. Great place for all age groups. The path has been renovated and is very good.
