Rambling: Loweswater, Lake District

Lake District
This is a short, low-level walk around Loweswater, which is both a lake and the name of a small village. It’s also the first walk in the Pathfinder Guide. On the day that my family and I hiked around the lake, The Loweswater Show was coincidentally being held in fields nearby – making it quite a challenge to squeeze the car around the horse boxes leaving the show along the narrow country lanes. There is parking is lay-bys along the Northern side of the lake.

The route for the walk was quite easy to follow, being largely around the lake. There are some lovely sections on the North side of the lake where the path is directly adjacent to the water. On the South side, much of the route is through woodland, although there is a stony beach with several ropes suspended from the trees – we caught a sheepish teenager enjoying a swing on those before he felt self-conscious.

The walked was booked at 4 miles.
