Rydal Water is one of the smallest lakes but it is very popular partly because of its Wordsworth connections. Steps lead up from the western end of the lake to ‘Wordsworth’s Seat’, a rocky outcrop – reputedly the poet’s favourite viewpoint as it was only a two mile walk from his home at Dove Cottage. It is very easy to see why, as Rydal Water reflects a landscape of trees, lakes and mountains which so inspired Wordsworth.
The same can be said for Rachel Bishop, who chose another golden flower to frame her design of Rydal Water, other than the daffodil so synonymous with Wordsworth. This time yellow flag irises take centre stage, while pale white and pink tinged waterlilies can be seen floating near the shoreline in the still, quiet waters. The slopes of Loughrigg Fell rise up majestically behind Rydal Water, just as they did over two hundred years ago when Wordsworth sat and admired the view.
