Claiffe Heights

Today we walked towards Claiffe Heights, between Esthwaite and Windermere. Our starting point was Beatrix Potter's home, Hill Top, in Near Sawrey. We didn't have enough time for a circular walk so it was a 'there and back' walk to Wise Een Tarn.

Our route was fairly straightforward:

Looking back towards Far Sawrey and Fellborough beyond

Lovely symmetry

Looking back to Moss Eccles Tarn

No shortage of companions today

Wise Een Tarn with the craggy Langdales behind and the highest Lakeland peaks in the far distance

The cold spell has produced a dusting of snow on the higher peaks

And then the Sun came out and everything looked different

Returning to Near Sawrey and Hill Top
And finally a pot of coffee and a cake with stunning views overlooking Esthwaite in Sawrey House Hotel, next door to Hill Top.
