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 a shortish walk from Ambleside centre. Not too strenuous and you are rewarded with fantastic views.

A magnificant walk with very rewarding reviews. You can walk from Ambleside centre and you can exit near the Lake and if you time the ferry, you can then travel to Windermere. A great day out.
