  • At Lakes Lodge we love to explore the countryside and Ambleside's very own 'Rydal Cave' walk may just be that wonderful winter wander you've been looking for...

    Beginning just north of Ambleside town on the A591, this pleasant stroll will take you and your trusty companion through Rydal Park to the old 'coffin road', running from the back of Rydal Mount which overlooks the beautiful Rydal Water. Concluding at Dove Cottage in the Grasmere Village, you can then drop down to White Moss at the north end of Rydal Water. After crossing the footbridge over the Rothay, you will proceed through the woods to the open fell and return to Ambleside round the far side of the Lake. You will pass the majestic Rydal Cave quarry on your way, then following on to the Underloughrigg Road for the final part of your journey.

    Leaflets illustrating this walk are available from the Ambleside Tourist Information Centre.
