Dob Gill has some lovely little waterfalls on the way up to Harrop Tarn, near Thirlmere. It’s an easy 2.6 mile loop walk that is well signed from the car park.
Lanty’s Tarn is a beautiful and accessible spot near Glenridding. Just beyond is the peak of Keldas, which has stunning views over Ullswater.
The walk up to Hayeswater in Patterdale is straightforward and fun, and perfect for a family walk. Park in Hartsop, less than 3 miles in total out and back.
This walk is to the very quiet and peaceful Small Water, and can be found at the end of Haweswater. The drive along Haweswater is stunningly beautiful, and we stopped several times to take photos.
