This four miler around the picturesque Loweswater lake is a lovely walk that’s perfect for children. There is plenty of room to run around so they probably won’t even notice the distance. There are loads of trees to climb and you could even try a game of hide and seek.
Unfortunately, the lake is a no-swimming zone for both humans and dogs but the walk is a still a nice one despite this, and you can rent boats if you fancy a trip out onto the water.
Don’t park at the Kirkstile – they won’t be happy! The track is really easy to find but on the road side of the lake you need to use your eyes to find the path beside the lake, there’s only a short bit where you actually need to walk on the road.
Lovely woods on the side opposite the road and good trees for climbing – there are also “tarzan” swings in the wood near the Bothy. In May the wood at the furthest end is covered in bluebells. Lots of good picnic spots on this side too.
You can either walk to the Kirkstile at the end of your walk or move your car to their car park while you have Grog – tasty food here too and famously good beer for the grown ups. It’s a very popular olde worlde Inn and can get very crowded at Bank Holidays but we almost always manage to get a table and in good weather the beer garden is excellent. Open all day but doesn’t do food and hot chocolate between 4.30pm and 6.00pm.
