Lake District Directory from

Haskew Tarn



Not everyone will agree with this, but on the right day this is a wonderful area. You'll discover solitude, wide open spaces and you'll hopefully find it a treat to wander in this beautiful area of the Lake District. On the other hand, if the weather happened to be somewhat less than tolerable, you'll likely think this a place you'll be unlikely to visit again.

The tarn itself is found just to the east of Seat Robert; the most prominent top in the immediate area. Anyone who is less than confident or accurate at navigating off path should aim for Seat Robert and locate the tarn from this convenient vantage point. Be warned though, after period of rain this is a very wet and boggy area indeed.
