We walked to ease dale tarn from the beautiful town of grasmere. The attraction is free but you should definitely have proper footwear and it is quite a long walk. The landscape is beautiful and is certainly worth a visit.

This tarn provides an oasis of rest and tranquility after the initial climb along Sour Milk Gill. The best time to visit Easedale Tarn is in excellent weather, late afternoon, when most of your fellow hikers will be making their way back down, to Grasmere...More

not sure if there is a map online but it is a easy walk to follow From Gradmere village to the tarn and back moderate walking about 2hrs. That's at a 61 yr old pace
