(By Windermere train station, you will pass Booths Supermarket, which is the biggest and best in the Lake District, if you need to stop to buy some food). Drive through Ambleside, signposted Grasmere.

Almost immediately after this, opposite Sams Bookshop, turn left, signposted Easedale Tarn. Follow for ½ mile, turn right just after a small bridge and j...
