The Kentmere Valley is one of the less frequented parts of the Lake District, although is relatively close to the hive of activity at Windermere. The hamlet at the end of the narrow valley has a small church, a few farms and a tarn, which was formed from draining a lake in the 19th century. It is peaceful valley to walk around – a pleasant 7 mile round trip can be walked from the village northwards, past Raven Crag as seen in this picture, up to Kentmere Reservoir and back.
