This walk starts in the pretty village of Rosthwaite which has some lovely pubs and the excellent Flock-in Walkers Tea Room at Yew Tree Farm (closed on Wednesdays). There is also a good village shop here. You can get some refreshments here, or halfway round the walk in the village of Grange there is a lovely tea room.

The walk begins with a lovely walk along the River Derwent through some woods. You can see some slate mines and pretty caves along this stretch. After the village of Grange the walk climbs slowly past Castle Crag (which can be reached by a short detour along this route – an easy path takes you to the top for some fantastic views of the valley). After passing Castle Crag the walk opens into a terrace providing wonderful views of Borrowdale Fells and valley below.

The walk then descends though some lovely woods back into the village of Rosthwaite.

Good walk. We extended it by following the river path up to Seatoller. Beware just after the Youth Hostel there's tricky bit but OK if you take care.
