Rydal Water, Lake District

Our original plan for our second day in the Lakes was to visit Coniston and climb Coniston Old Man but, like last time, the weather had other ideas. It turned out to be one of the hottest days of the year, so we decided against climbing a mountain and instead we headed to Rydal Water, a lake near the hamlet of Rydal.

Rydal wasn’t somewhere that I had heard of before, we just stumbled across it on the way to Grasmere to get some of their world-famous gingerbread. There’s parking at the lake and after crossing over a bridge you’re greeted with stunning scenery. The are a few different tracks that you can walk – we chose one that took us alongside the lake up to Rydal Cave.
