Choose one of these scenic walks in the Lake District, ideal for this time of year and an Autumn walk in Windermere and beyond. In fact, no matter which hotel, B&B, guesthouse or hostel in Windermere you decide to stay at there’s a walk for all occasions.
Scenic Walks in the Lake District
Here we look at just 5 scenic walks in the Lake District, although of course there are 100’s more routes and areas to discover.
Loughrigg Fell and Rydal Water
This is one of those walks in the Lake District ideal for the less experienced walker. Loughrigg Fell is just outside Ambleside and although it is nowhere near as high as the likes of Scafell Pike, the views are just as rewarding. Just look around and you can see Rydal Water, Grasmere and Lake Windermere all from the same viewpoint.
Tarn Hows near Coniston
During a winter break in the Lake District, Tarn Hows is likely to be less busy than in the heat of summer. Although very much one of the more popular walking routes all year round. Especially during the Autumn months upon a crisp clear morning.
Haystacks Hill and Buttermere Lake
Buttermere offers a choice of 2 scenic walks in the Lake District, both of which are stunning for pretty much the same reason. The variety of trees providing a beautiful backdrop, particularly in Autumn as the leaves start to change colour. So either take the 2 hour circular walk around the lake and take in the mirror-like images of the trees. Alternatively, hike up Haystacks Hill and see the array of colours from up above.
Scafell Pike Mountain
Famous for being the highest mountain in England, Scafell Pike stands at an impressive 978 meters above sea level. It’s no wonder then, that the end result for those that conquer it are some of the most scenic walks in the Lake District. Although if you need any assistance, by staying at the Windermere Guesthouse and Hostel Icicle Mountaineering and Mountain Goat Tours are only just around the corner.
Lake Windermere and Orrest Head
Then of course, there’s an abundance of walks along Lake Windermere. You will spoilt for choice when it comes to deciding which walking route to take. If you’re considering covering the entire length of the water and back again, that’s a staggering 45 miles.
