Beacon Tarn and Fell. Generally very quiet, with stunning views of the Old Man Range from the tarn and more from the fell top including Coniston Water.
Distance 6.6 km
Turn off (left when heading towards Coniston) from the main road at Water Yeat and then left again just before the village hall. Cross the cattle grid and park on the grass area on the right hand side before reaching Katy Moss (the house). Delightful quiet walk up to Beacon Tarn (a must swim in the summer) and then on to the top of Beacon fell for a great panaromic view and to see Coniston Water in all its glory. There are lots of tracks up here to explore.
