Brothers water is a small lake in the Hartsop Valley in the Lake District. This is such an incredible walk!! The route takes you along the shoreline of Brothers Water and what makes this such a great walk is the level terrain – the path is wide and safe and is accessible with a single, or double, pram.

The route we took was approximately 2.5 miles, however you could walk as much, or as little, as you wanted. The next time we visit I think I will stay close to the shoreline and let the children spend less time walking and more time playing in the water, climbing and exploring the mini waterfalls. The path is relatively sheltered making this a good walk for wetter days too.

There is a car park at the very beginning of this walk, it is called Cow Bridge car park and the postcode is CA11 0NZ. My children absolutely adored this walk! We didn’t see another soul, making it an ideal place for social distancing and it felt so serene and beautiful!
