Seat Sandal

The nicest way to climb Seat Sandal is via the path above Tongue Gill to Grisedale Hause, and then climb the steep east ridge beside the wall. This way most of the view is in front of you whilst coming down the ridge towards Grasmere. Here you should look out for kestrels hovering above the fields, hunting.

If descending from Grisedale Hause to Grasmere via Tongue Gill, be aware of the stone pitched path as it is very slippery when wet.

Parking near the start of this walk is limited to laybys above and below, on the main A591. The lower layby has the advantage that whilst it's further it is downhill back to your car, and there is a pavement. There is also plenty of pay and display parking in Grasmere, or if you have accommodation in the village, the start point can be reached by taking Easedale Road to Goody Bridge. Just after the bridge, turn right signposted to Thorney How, go all the way to the junction at Low Mill Bridge and turn right up to the A591 and the start point.
