From Grasmere continue in the direction of Elterwater where you will come across the notorious Red Bank, this is a rather steep hill so take it easy. From the top of Red Bank continue to follow route signs which direct you down the wiggly road to Elterwater Common (enjoy the view) and on to Elterwater village.

INTERESTING FACT: Grasmere village is a classic tourist attraction. Here is Dove Cottage, the home of the English poet William Wordsworth. Sir Walter Scott often visited the Wordsworths, and is also known to have frequented The Swan Hotel, where he partook of a few drams. Grasmere is now the home of Sarah Nelson’s world-famous Grasmere Gingerbread shop, which is tucked away at the corner of the churchyard of St. Oswald’s Church.
