Loweswater

 

Map


Being one of the smallest lakes, Loweswater offers an opportunity for the less adventurous to walk the complete circuit of a lake within a couple of hours. And what a couple of hours it is; beautiful countryside, lake shore paths and fantastic views of the nearby fells. Even the road walk along the northern side of the lake is enjoyable.

With each passing season Loweswater offers the visitor one treat after another, but my own preference for a walk here would be on a warm sunny evening in late spring, when the air in Holme Wood is filled with the scent of bluebells and the whole place is just bursting with new life.
