Amazing views if the weather is clear and a gorgeous walk on the way home, lovely waterfall about halfway. A bit rocky but quite okay for young kids.

Just below Ambleside (south) Lowfold Car Park, there are some free spaces at the back, there is a signpost off Old Lake Rd for Wansfell, Jenkin's Crag.
