This colourful pocket-sized guide is your passport to 30 great walks around Ambleside and the southern half of the Lake District National Park. Starting from villages such as Grasmere, Coniston, Elterwater, Boot and Hawkeshead, you can explore the delights of Rydal Water, Great Langdale, Wastwater, Eskdale and Windermere. All the walks are no more than 5 miles in length, offering a perfect half day's stroll for families, casual walkers and all who want to enjoy a leisurely exploration of the outstanding landscapes of the Lake District.
