Tarn Hows Circular Route

Tarn Hows Circular Route

With beautiful views of the Lakeland fells this easy circular route is ideal for the whole family. It is suitable for buggies and mobility aids. There is also a separate path leading up above the tarn so you can really take in those exceptional views if you are able. Keep your eyes out for the adorable fluffy Belted Galloway cows.

From the car park, cross the road and take the left hand fork following the track down to the lake side. Pass through the gate and continue on the track in a clockwise direction around the Tarn.

Follow the track as it continues around the Tarn to a point where a path crosses the main route. Continue straight ahead around the tarn and back to the car park if a level surfaced path is required. Otherwise to extend the walk and take in good views, pass through the gate to the left of the track and proceed uphill to an upper track. Continue on this track in the direction signposted to Consiton, Hawkshead and Old Car Park until reaching the Viewing Car Park. Note this extension is unsuitable for mobility scooters and pushchairs

From the car park cross the road and pass through the gate following a footpath across the field, keeping the Tarn to the right hand side. This path can be muddy in bad weather. An alternative is to follow the road back towards the main car park

Continue on the track as it passes downhill and up again before descending back through a gate into to the main car park.
