Lots of Hotels and Restaurants very nearby, very pretty place too. Just a short walk away from the Daffodil Hotel and Spa where we were staying. Lots of walks within a short distance to get even better views of the Lake.

Started at Rydal Mount and walked along the coffin route to Grasmere through the village then round the otherside of the lake and back to Rydal. Beautiful scenery and views across the lake and lovely easy 6 mile walk even the kids enjoyed it.

Beautiful lake , village and home to William Wordsworth and family. Walk to the village for scones and tea. A wonderful resting spot for an afternoon walk. Enjoy and take your time to catch up on your poetry!

Visit Grasmere. Loved the views and the town is cute. Boating is allowed and I am sure the fishing would be fantastic.

Yes most of the path is accessible. I remember we had to cross a shallow stream on the beach bit but if you're ok with that it will be ok. There is a path through some woods which was decking type but you may need to carry... More

The Vale Rydal circular cycle route is about 12 miles, Grassmere also suitable. Classed for mountain bikes as it does have areas of rougher terrain. The area has gates to open and allow access. Some areas are steep. And... More
