Tarn Hows



"Calm & tranquil"

If ever there was a competition for the most popular Lakeland beauty spot Tarn Hows would probably be the winner.

It is easy to see why, and this pretty tarn, enclosed by low and craggy hills, and surrounded by mixed woodland, meadow and scrub, encapsulates all that is so attractive about the Lakes.
