If you want a stroll that tells you everything about why the Lake District is so popular, this is the walk for you. It is very short but has more interest and impact than many longer routes and is ideal for an evening stroll, perhaps on the day you arrive in the Lakes, a picnic on a summer's afternoon or a quick dash on a cold day. Whenever you enjoy it, be sure to choose clear weather though, because the views are its most memorable feature. The route first climbs a low hill (this is the Lake District after all!) for truly outstanding views of Lake Windermere with the iconic Langdales beyond. As you go over the hill, more views of the southern end of the lake open up before you. The route then leads along the tree-lined lakeshore, passing a once-popular bathing spot (you could have a swim if you are so inclined) and an ancient ferryman's cottage before returning over an old stone bridge and beside the tumbling waters of Wynlass Beck.
