Tarn Hows

The well known and much loved Tarn Hows is a lovely walk from Hawkshead, and is a great place for a picnic, with its scenic backdrop of Coniston Old Man, around to the Langdales and the Fairfield Horseshoe. Left to National Trust by Beatrix Potter there is a reasonably level circular path suitable for pushchairs and wheel chairs with assistance.

Tarn Hows is also accessible by car and is just a 5 minute drive from Hawkshead village. The Lakes Lodges Reception has guided maps with directions to Tarn Hows and back from Hawkshead village, or our local team can direct you if you are driving.
