“Radiant Rydal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2013

One of the sixteen lakes of Windermere the second smallest length 0.75 miles width 0.25 depth 55 ft . Well worth the effort lovely walk, surprising sand around the edges in places people sunbathing enjoying the sun.

“great views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

very popular walk with locals and tourist mainly flat so good for families and elderly alike but also the views are fantastic for couples to enjoy, the path is great for mountain bikers, at the top of the path both rydal and grasmere lakes can be seen,the walk can be extended to take in the coffin trail or more energetic walkers can venture to the top of loughrigg.good walk any time of the year the colours in september , october breathtaking

“Beautiful walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2013

Not a very hard walk with great views over the lake. Make sure you take the top track up to the cave great sight to see.The walk around the lake should only take a couple of hours at a leisurely pace.

“must-do walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2013

go here on every lakes vacation,which is at least yearly. peace and tranquility but not too isolated.feels like a million miles from the bustling towns but close to both ambleside and grasmere.for the more energetic and adventurous try going up nab scar reached via rydal hall.stunning views of rydal and caves.

“So pretty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2013 via mobile

Had a fantastic walk here. Pretty scenery. The bluebells were abundant, looking beautiful and smelling divine. Make the effort to walk up to the cave, it's breathtaking.
