Devoke Water

Devoke Water is the largest tarn (small lake) in the Lake District. It lies on Birker Fell, at an altitude of 770 feet (223 m). It has a depth of 46 ft (14 m).

The tarn can be reached via a bridle track. At the tarn, you'll find a two-storey stone boathouse-cum-refuge and a ruined stable. The tarn is pronounced Duvvock by locals.

It's a lovely place to while away an hour or two - when the weather is favourable.
