Walking at Loweswater

May 23, 2013

We have been looking at some lower-level walks in the Lake District for people who want some easier rambles.Loweswater 028

The other day we walked the south-western shores of Loweswater, on a day that started misty after rain, but soon became sunnier. A tranquil day by this lovely stretch of water, which is often quieter than the popular lakes.

A simple stroll along very good paths from the lower end of the lake to Maggie’s Bridge and return, suitable for most walkers.

The woodlands looked beautiful with their fresh show of new green leaves.

We started on the road car park below Loweswater Hall, then down through Hudson Place to the lake. Then along the shore, passing the National Trust’s bothy, through Watergate Farm to Maggie’s Bridge, then back again. On the return we took a path up to through the woodland to see the very attractive waterfall of Holme Force.

This is a very easy walk, no more than a few miles, but I commend it to you, particularly as a destination for these longer summer evenings.Loweswater 027

    Beautiful calm photo at the end there. Not sure I’ve been to Holme Force but it looks a really lovely waterfall so I hope to rectify that sometime soon!
