With Grasmere being in the centre of the English Lake District, there are lots of fantastic walks surrounding the village. Some walks are easy, perfect for families or just a casual wander, where others are rather challenging. We’ve compiled a list of some of our favourite easy walks, now you just need to go and try them out!
Grasmere Lake is a major part of the villages character, the Lakeshore walk is lovely for the whole family. Pick a sunny day, grab yourself a picnic and enjoy the scenic views of the lakeshore. With Loughrigg towering over you, it’s hard not to take in the beautiful scenery of the village. Keep an eye out for the hollow tree, which makes a perfect picture opportunity!
Loughrigg is named as one of Wordsworth’s “midget mountains” but is definitely a must-do walk whenever your in the Lake District. Starting in Grasmere, and a mile’s walk up Red Bank Road, the path will take you up woodland leading up to Loughrigg terrace. A steep incline will take you up to the summit, where the spectacular views will take your breath away! Either you can head back down, or find a path on the Southern side taking you to Loughrigg Tarn.
Easedale is definitely up there with our favourite walks. The steady path allows it to be accessed by the whole family, and the finishing point is worthy of a homemade picnic being put in the rucksack! Easedale Tarn itself is somewhat of a tranquil haven, surrounded by steep mountains you will feel blown away by the views!
