This circular walk around a man-made tarn is perfect for little legs or wheels. It has plenty of picnic spots and hideaways for chilly days or wide-open spaces for basking in the sunshine. The scenery, which almost feels a bit Canadian because of the pines, takes in the Langdale Pikes and the Coniston Hills, and the tarn is surrounded by woodland and a fairly smooth path – ideal for babes in pushchair. There are baby-changing facilities and an icecream van, and sometimes a high-class burger van selling Belted Galloway Beef.
