We're an active family, with a 3 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

Coniston Water, Coniston

Coniston Water is one of our favourite lakes in the Lake District, and is accessible from many areas.  Here is the perfect family picnic, based near the Bluebird Cafe in Coniston itself.

Sella Rock, south of Ulpha

Sella Rock, about a mile south of Ulpha village, is a beautiful little picnic spot. We’ve driven past here many a time, on the way to or from our family walks.  And we’ve often seen people picnic’ing and frolicking by the river bank.  Well today we finally made a stop there!

Spout Force, Whinlatter

We stopped off to have a look at Spout Force, just to the west of Whinlatter Forest.  This walk is best done when the leaves are not on the trees!  If you go up there in the height of summer you’re only likely to see a tiny slither of waterfall inbetween all the trees and shrubs.
