  • Had a delightful walk up to the tarn from Grasmere. If you are a regular fell walker an easy climb, for the casual walker a bit chalenging in a few places but worth the effort. Great views of surounding hills and a charming tarn when you arrive.
  • Amazing and easy walk to a Tarn that reminds me of an infinity pool
  • Well worth the visit , a beautiful Tarn .
