Grab your hat, scarf and gloves for the perfect autumnal walk with a gorgeous pub at the end. Even better, it's within easy reach of Greater Manchester.

If you're looking for a walk that's also suitable for wheelchair users, or anyone bringing along a pram, the White Moss Common walk in Cumbria is a brilliant choice - with some amazing mountainous views along the way.

This is an easy Lake District walk from the White Moss Common car park situated between Grasmere and Rydal Water. The first section is on an accessible path through woodland with the latter section still suitable for most abilities, Lancs Live reports.

The walk is a woodland and riverside trail to the Grasmere outflow that’s for families with small children and pushchairs. The area consists of a series of nice footpaths taking you through woodland and meadows between Rydal Water and Grasmere Lake.

On the way look out for picturesque waterfalls and pretty bluebells in the spring time. It's a pretty area with picnic tables and the option of crossing a bridge and heading to Grasmere - you also need to stop off in Grasmere and pick up some Grasmere gingerbread.

Once you've finished this walk, or even along the way, you can stop off at The Swan in Grasmere which has one of the most amazing backdrops in the Lake District.

The Swan at Grasmere sits in a valley in the shadows of patchwork mountain ranges. The traditional ancient inn, which dates back to the 1650s, was legendary author William Wordsworth's local. It featured in in his 1806 poem, The Waggoner and was described as "the loveliest spot man hath ever found”.

The Swan is set just outside the characteristic tourist village of Grasmere, which is on the banks of one of the national Park's smallest lakes and famed for its gingerbread and the hub for a network of hiking trails.

Here are all the directions you'll need for this walk as explained by the Lake District National Park Authority:

  • From the lower White Moss Common Car Park, follow the wide, smooth stone path out of the car park and cross a wooden footbridge. This brings you into a meadow area with two small benches close to the riverside.
  • The River Rothay is beautiful here, often sun dappled as the light passes through the trees, and is alive with ducks, dippers and herons. In spring, the woodland is carpeted in bluebells.
  • The steep fell to the north is Nab Scar and Loughrigg Fell rises to the south.
  • Continue along the path to a picnic bench and an area of hard standing, the route for all ends here. This is a great place for a rest and a picnic.
  • Ahead is Penny Rock Wood. The path through here has been improved and zigzags up the initial slope at a gradient which exceeds 1:8.
  • Follow the path to the junction where wheelchair and pushchair users need to take the right hand route, avoiding the steep slope and steps down to the Grasmere outflow bridge. Once over the bridge, rest and savour the iconic view of the lake.
  • You can then follow the path back.
