We're an active family, with a 4 and 6 year old, from Bowness on Windermere in the Lake District. This page follows some of our adventures into the fells, pubs and local areas

Furness Abbey, Barrow-in-Furness

We found ourselves in Barrow-in-Furness, to the south of the Lake District, on a beautiful sunny afternoon.  We’d heard about Furness Abbey, but never visited.  What an amazing hidden gem! The place is amazing!  Huge ruins of the old abbey.  The children absolutely loved clambering over and through it.  They played games and we stayed for several hours, with our picnic.

Reston Scar, Staveley

Today’s walk took us to Reston Scar, which is just above Staveley village.  It’s a beautiful 2 mile circular loop walk, taking in Black Crag and Reston Scar.  With views out over Ings, Staveley and the mountains beyond. It finishes in Staveley village playground and / or the Eagle & Child pub!
