"Watendlath Tarn" Lake District National Park Off The Beaten Path Tip by toontraveller

  More Geese
by toontraveller

At the southern end of Derwentwater there are many fine views and you will find one of the most photographed in the Lakes, Ashness Bridge. Most people go there, take a photo and turn back but carry on through Hogs Earth and past the Lodore Falls and you will come to the tiny homestead of Watendlath. This is a picture perfect stopping place, a dead end in fact but you can buy food and drink here and laze by the tarn or perhaps feed the Geese like we did.

There are of course a number of walks starting here too so don't turn back too early or you'll miss the best bits.
