Scenic views of Tarn Hows in winter

Tarn Hows

Only 3.5 miles from Fox Corner, Tarn Hows is a lovely circular walk. Around 1.8 miles long, it should take just over an hour to complete with good paths along the whole way. You can extend the route slightly with a little detour to Tom Gill waterfall. Enjoy views across the Langdale Pikes and towards Coniston.

Views across hills on a walk in the Lakes

Lingmoor Fell and Side Pike

This 4-mile walk manages to tick off 1 Wainright and 2 Birketts. Starting at the legendary Old Dungeon Ghyll pub in Langdale, the walk does include some hands-on rock scrambling over the ridge of Side Pike but you will be rewarded with stunning views across the Langdale fells and Coniston.
