It is quite a trek up to the Tarn but one is well rewarded by the spectacular setting of the Tarn with an amazing background (In February) of snow clad mountains. Returning by a different route is challenging because of some rather uneven stepping stones...More

Good walk on well maintained stone paths up to tarn. Very steep on places but lots of good views and waterfall alongside. Short walk then to the tarn. Stepping stones across at the top a bit tricky when water in full flow. We chose to...More

Possibly one of the most stunning locations I've ever seen. The base of the mountain is an idyllic valley with 360 panoramas devoid of the modern world but full of sheep. There's a gentle stream overflowing onto crooked paths which you follow. The falls on...More

Complete with snow and blue sky. Beautiful. Great day out with a few other tourists around. One couple without a map and didn’t know what a tarn was!!!! Also lots of signage warning the red squirrels to slow down! Lovely day out

Fabulous walk to Easedale Tarn - aprox 4 miles round trip from Grasmere village, with some stunning scenery. Quite difficult terrain in parts so do take some walking sticks.

An easy walk from Grasmere to the tarn. Kept more interesting by continuing upwards to Codale tarn. More strenuous but worth the walk.

Had only thought we would walk a little way up, but got chatting to a nice couple from Liverpool, so kept on walking. Views are absolutely breath taking at the top and well worth the effort.

A lovely walk, with a steep ascent, but worth it when at the top. We went following a lot of rain and unfortunately when we got to the top we were unable to cross the tarn to walk down the other side, bit the views...More

We were staying in Grasmere so this was an ideal walk to do just after breakfast as wet and windy conditions were predicted for the afternoon. The easy to follow footpath by the side of the river was flooded in places and at times a...More
