A Short Stroll to Lodore Falls

A short walk through trees and moss covered rocks to the thundering Lodore Falls in the beautiful Borrowdale valley near Grange. The 30m cascade is situated just behind the Lodore Falls Hotel buildings.

The falls were written about in a poem by the Lake Poet Robert Southey in 1820. Obviously, the best time to visit is after heavy rain when the falls are at their most impressive. After a dry spell they tends to be rather poor.

Although the path is off-road it is never far away, mostly just the other side of a wall but with gaps where small children and dogs could stray.

The nearest place to park, for those not staying at the hotel, is at the National Trust's Kettlewell pay and display car park.
