Tarn Hows is something special

A picturesque Tarn Hows in the snow

Tarn Hows is a beauty spot only 2 miles northeast of Coniston and about 1.5 miles northwest of Hawkshead.

The circular path is set amidst woodland with grazing cattle, birdlife and small mammals, surround by stunning views of the Langdale Pikes.  Beatrix Potter knew how special Tarn Hows was and the National Trust members, volunteers and visitors work hard to keep it special.  Whether it’s coat, hat and wellies or shorts, shades and trainers - no matter the weather, Tarn Hows is as relaxing as it is invigorating.
