Overview of the tour in Lake District

I live & work in Kendal, and this is my favorite short walk in Ambleside.

When I was a student, I worked in Ambleside during the summer holidays, and after a busy shift at The Apple Pie, there was nothing better than walking up to Lily Tarn & taking in the views. The scenery is stunning; it's a wonderful, calm & relaxing place, and you rarely see anyone else.

We'll enjoy the views of the town & Lake Windermere and finish by the river and Roman Fort.

I'll also share everything I love about this area, including:

- Other local walks
- Places to visit, eat & drink
- Events & festivals

My dad is a dairy & sheep farmer in South Lakeland, and his farm supports five families producing delicious, award-winning cheese, running glamping accommodations & making gorgeous felts. We'll discuss the importance of the wool industry to this area, how farming has shaped the landscape, and the future of farming.

If you can't make the days/times but are interested, I may be able to offer something bespoke. Please get in touch to discuss this.

This activity includes:

  • Ambleside Roman Fort
  • Rothay Park

We'll meet at the entrance to Rothay Park by the church.

Things to note

This walk is about 5km, through woodland & over fells, on paths which could be muddy & slippy when wet, and as such walking boots, wellies or trainers (that you don't mind getting dirty) are recommended. To gain the best views, there will be some uphill walking, with the total ascent being about 203m. The Cumbrian weather can also be unpredictable, so the blue sky views aren't guaranteed, but an adventure is! :-)
