Always offering amazing views, and different perspectives in different seasons, Rydal Water has something for everyone with its various walks and places to visit.
The waterside route on the southern side of the lake offers breaktaking views of the fells around you and Rydal water. With options to walk up to the caves or walk on to the Coffin Route on the northern side.
With so much to see - River Rothay, rushing becks, pretty waterfalls, woodland trails, Rydal Hall with its cafe and pretty gardens you won’t be disappointed.
You can also start your walk from White Moss and follow a footpath south through woodland and along the River Rothay to the eastern tip of Grasmere.
The path then climbs east towards Loughrigg Terrace before descending to the lakeside path. Eventually the path takes you through woodland and across the Rothay before climbing towards Rydal Hall.
Whilst in Rydal why not visit Rydal Mount ? Once the home of the Lakes own William Wordsworth, the English romantic poet whose poetry is synonymous with the region. Indeed you too might ‘Wander lonely as a Cloud’... but without doubt filled with awe.
