TARN HOWS - Posted 24 Feb 2017
Tarn Hows is one the most popular small waters, a stunning beauty spot the picturesque location offers the perfect, easy circular walk for all.
Located between Coniston and Hawskhead, the tarn was created in Victorian times by damming a group of smaller waters known as the Coniston Monk Tarns. One legend tells that a local landowner undertook the project as a gift for his wife. True or false, it is a very romantic place, perfect for making grand gestures and proposals – take a picnic and a bottle of bubbly.
Getting there is easy; you can find the location and directions on Google Maps – Tarn Hows. On arrival there are two car parks. The main car park, manned by the National Trust, is pay and display for non-NT members. The current tariff is 2 Hours - £4.40, 4 Hours - £6.00 and all day £7.00. You will also find a WC and, nine times out of ten, the ice cream van.
The other car park is specifically for disabled drivers and visitors and is located at one of the best viewpoints overlooking the tarn.

Along with our wonderful landscape and the National Park, the Lake District offers some of the finest dining in the country, a vibrant cultural and arts scene and, for those who want something a little out of the ordinary, we have gathered together a list of people, places and events that should satisfy the most adventurous spirited visitor.
A Video Tour Of The Lake District
If you have yet to visit the Lake District, then why not start by watching our little film. An 11 minute movie, it gets to essence of this beautiful landscape.
Shot by Jack Serginson and Ollie Gough, the movie shows why our stunning area is the No1 holiday destination.
We want you to truly have a relaxing time and unwind during your stay. We have teamed up with My Personal Sanctuary who offer 5 star quality organic massage and treatments, carried out in the comfort of your holiday home.
To add to the relaxed mood why not order a delicious meal from Clare Boissier, a Prue Leith-trained chef with over 20 years experience and will work throughout the county, Debby Bainbridge in the North Lakes or Lucy’s of Ambleside in South Lakes.

During our early careers in the advertising industry, based in London, we loved coming to the Lake District to refresh and recharge. The contrast between the buzz of London and the serenity and sheer majestic beauty of the lakes and mountains a real tonic. With long walks during the day, simply taking in the landscape, returning to a cosy cottage or hotel for the evening we could think of nothing or anywhere more perfect.
In 1993 we decided to move to the Lake District for a whole new life, with an idea of creating our own cottage agency, one different from others, one that would offer visitors an exceptional experience, where quality not numbers mattered.
We hoped our skills, John an advertising still life photographer and Clare head of various Ad Agency print and art buying departments, would benefit home owners and holidaymakers, presenting holiday homes in an exciting manner, along with lots of information about the area, the attractions and just why, like us, once visited you to will fall in love with this unique part of England. Come - enjoy.
