“a good walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2013

nice easy walking with lots to see. Kept the dog entertained for hours. also walked to Grasmere from here. Parked at white moss to start the walk. Visited the cave as well which was well worth the effort. Passed the whole day here including enjoying a cream tea at the Faery garden tea shop.

“Loveliest corner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

Rydal Water is an outstanding corner of the Lake District and handy for Wordsworth's home and garden at Rydal Mount, Dora's field where he and his family planted daffodil's in Dora's memory, and the lovely path through the grounds of Rydal Hall (with a cafe next to a beck). What's not to like?

“Lovely views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

We did a walk from Ambleside to rydal water. Long but great views. Well worth it. It goes over loughrigg too. Bit hilly in places but flattens out.

Beautiful views both from above and below. Pop into the Badgers bar or sit in the beer garden and admire the view from there. It's heaven on earth.

“Lovely family walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2013

Took a short round trip upto the caves here and then back down along the lakes edge. Beautiful scenery, loads for the kids to look at and wonderful fresh air. Can fish, paddle or just enjoy the view.
