Dog Friendly
Dogs are fine off the lead. Sheep fields are well fenced off, and there isn't much in the way of water birds on the lake itself.
Toilets at several car parks along the route.
Refreshments at Swirls Car Park in summer season (ice cream van).
Several car parks around the edge of the lake (Swirls accepts card payment, the rest are cash).
Local Transport
Right on the A591 with bus routes out of Keswick and Ambleside with stops along the edge of Thirlmere.
