Ambleside to Rydal and the Caves

7.5km / miles
160m ascent
Half day

From Ambleside, we amble our way along the old coffin route to Rydal, passing the Historic Rydal Hall (with a lovely tea room).

From here, we meet the picturesque Rydal water and a take a short detour to see the impressive Rydal Caves.

The return is nice and flat following an old road along the side of the River Rothay to return to Ambleside for tea and cakes.
