Simply wonderful like so much of the Lakes, Grasmere has so many viewpoints from which to stand and stare and the green luxury of the waters and the fells reflected in it.

One of many beautiful lakes in this area. It's one of the smallest of the lakes, and it's easy to walk around it. It's possible to rent a boat and explore the lake, but we were told to stay off the privately owned island, Together...More

We set out from Grasmere and circled both the lake and the adjoining lake, which took us past Rydal Hall. We ended up doing about 16K with both wooded and open hillside trails, with frequent and sharp changes in elevation. We did have some adventures...More

There's something about Grasmere which draws us like a magnet. Whatever the season, whatever the weather, the lake has a magical quality and is surrounded by beautiful countryside where, despite the crowds in Grasmere village, you can still find peace and solitude. This year we...More

2 to 3 hours. Not the best along the road section. You can cross the road though and pick up a trail/road and walk back into Grasmere (Town End) from behind White Moss Car park. Part of the old coffin trail. Enjoy!
