I usually go over to England every other year. My friend and his lovely wife live in Carlisle. When I'm there visiting with my friends, I always ask my friend to take me to Ashness Bridge. There is something there that keeps drawing me back to see the Bridge. I guess I've been there at least a dozen or more times. It is certainly worth the trip and the time. Absolutely beautiful!

Even the walk in the rain to reach this beautiful spot was great. Very quiet and within a few steps there were different views to be had.

If you visit Derwentwater, you simply must visit Ashness Bridge:)
We walked up from the lakeside in about 15 minutes and when you get there it is a really beautiful spot!

When you see this bridge in person, you understand why it is such a famous spot! A very beautiful spot and worth a visit. You can walk to it from the Ashness boat stop (about 10 minutes from the Keswick dock if you take the clockwise loop) - it’s a pretty steadily steep walk that took about 30 minutes. It’s not a hiking path, but a small paved road that cars do come down - no real shoulder to go on if you hear a car coming, but the cars were generally respectful when they saw you and would slow down or pull over. But you do need to be aware and listening as they can sneak up on you.

Worth going the extra 30 minutes up the same small road to Surprise View - again, a steep walk, but worth the second amazing view!

It seems worth stopping here to take in the view and there is limited parking, but better to walk up from the lakeside.

We drove up to the bridge, crossed the bridge and parked and took in the sights.

We drove further up to the scenic view and looked over Borrowdale and took in the sights.

We drove further up to Watendlath to the promise of a coffee shop and toilet stop but they were closed on the day we visited. The drive was on a very very small road.

The views from the bottom to the top are amazing and the waterfalls spectacular.

Worth visiting when its been raining.

Walked from Great Wood car park to this iconic much photographed old bridge.

Quite busy, can get a good photo with patience.

Have visited here several times over the last 35 years, always rewards a re-visit.
Next time we will park here and take the walk up to (don't tell everyone) the wonderful secret (and signposted) Surprise view
