Car park, Tarn Hows

Tarn Hows is reputed to be one of the Lake Districts most popular tourist destinations. I should point out that the prices in the car park and the amount of traffic would help to confirm this. This is a car park I wouldn't even think of trying to park after 10 am during the summer months.

I you are lucky enough to find a space then Tarn Hows itself is no more than a couple of minutes walk away.
