Rydal Water, Windermere

Close

Rydal Water, Windermere

Rydal Water is one of the smallest lakes in the Lake District at only 1.2 km long. Despite this, it’s a favourite of many visitors due to its connections with the famous Romantic poets William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge.

Nab Cottage, the home of Coleridge’s son, overlooks the lake. From the western side of the lake you can follow steps to Wordsworth’s Seat – apparently the poet’s favourite spot to survey the lake from.

Fans of Wordsworth will also enjoy a walk around Rydal Water which takes in Dove Cottage and Rydal Mount. These were two of the writer’s homes. Even if you are more interested in geography than literature, then this walk will suit you too as it passes a large cavern in the hill above the lake called Rydal Cave.
