We did the walk to Easedale Tarn from Lancrigg Hotel. It was misty and wet, therefore the views eluded us. But it was so thrilling to be outside and watching the misty clouds constantly changing shape and space. I was surprised and pleased to see so many people out on a day like that. By the time we reached the... More

My wife and I went on a trek up to easedale tarn when there was supposed to be a break in the weather, however this never materialised but we persisted anyway. We walked from grasmere and the walk was not to testing even in the rain and some of the paths at the bottom were flooded but okay if you... More

We walked in March just after heavy rains so Sourmilk Gill was in full torrent. Breathtaking. Downside was the beck had breached the path in a few places making for some wet feet and rendering the circular route inaccessible as the stepping stones by Easedale Tarn were completely covered and the water force just too high to attempt a crossing....

It's well worth the 40mins to 1 hour walk. Paths are good and simple to follow. The tarn is surrounded by higher fells on 3 sides which makes a natural amphitheatre. A serene spot with access to the higher fells via a continuation of the path, which should be treated with the respect any fell walk deserves.

Easedale Tarn is a beautiful tarn about 2.5 miles out of Grasmere. You can reach it as part of a circular walk and the footpath is well marked.

Good walk, lovely tarn that you can walk all the way round, great waterfalls on the way up. All very photogenic. About 5 miles round trip from Grasmere.

Quite an extrodiary location when you reach the tarn, but do avoid when it is icy as the stone steps up to it from Easedale are lethal. Easy climb which ever way you go up, easy to make into a circular walk. Can get very busy so choose your time of day

We did this with a 3 and 5 year old. We all loved the walk. it took us about 3 hours all in, we didn't walk round the tarn we just walked there and back and that was enough for our kids. Highly recommended.

If you are not used to fell walking, this could be slightly more than you bargained for, but worth it! We met several 'novices' who almost turned back, there is at least one false hope moment, where you expect the tarn to come into view, it is still some way off. With a little effort, this is a delightful walk.... More

This isn't too long a walk up and down and would suit a family with children. There's nothing to stop you swimming in the tarn except the cold! But probably not advisable for a solo traveller.
