On Saturday morning, we took a hike along Arnside Sands, around Arnside Point, up Arnside Knott, and then back to Arnside. The entire hike was 4.7 miles, with an ascent of 469 ft, and it took us just over 3 hours. Then it was on to our homestay townhouse in Ambleside, The Pavement Cottage, that we rented through Airbnb. Later in Ambleside, we hiked down to the ruins of the Roman Fort on the waterfront, and then we walked over and had drinks and dinner at The Wateredge Inn, before walking back to our flat.
This is the view looking west from near the top of Arnside Knott. You are looking across the mouth of the River Kent, which flows south (from right to left). On the far shore, you see the village of Grange-over-Sands. On the top of the hill to the right of the village is the Hampsfell Hospice (barely out of sight), which we will hike to on Day 11.
