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

School Knott, Windermere

School Knott is a great little walk, offering beautiful views over Windermere Town and the lake.  You can start this walk from Windermere or Bowness, but to keep it easy for little legs, we parked near Windermere Golf Club and did the 2.5 mile lollipop loop from there.

Hay Stacks

Today was our 100th family walk in the Lake District.  And it was an epic!  Hay Stacks stands 597 metres (1958 feet) in height.  But starting at Honister gives you an advantage as that is 332 metres (1089 feet).  This also makes it a Wainwright fell, to tick off the list! It is 2.2 miles there.  We did an out and back so 4.4 miles in total.
