Ambleside Day 2: A Lakeside Ramble

Car based walk with Andy Buckley & Jon Buckland.

8.7 mi



After yesterdays high level ridge walk today we will be doing a more sedate walk. We will retrace our steps from yesterday to pass through the beautiful grounds of Rydal Hall before heading over the coffin route to Grasmere and a visit to the fabulous Grasmere Gingerbread shop. After a stop at the Ginerbread shop we head around the southern shore of Grasmere Water which links us to the shore of Rydal Water before heading back to Ambleside for a quick pub visit before headnig off home.
