For a great few hours and the chance to see red deer go for a walk along Thirlmere to Great How. Park at the Station Coppice car park (take some change for the expensive charges) and walk through the woods along the lake to Great How. When you get to the bottom of Great How it is worth the walk to the top for the extensive views in all directions. If you are lucky the wildlife will come out to see you.
