Stanley Ghyll Force Waterfall is possibly one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the Lake District. Seemingly surrounded by lush green vegetation, come summer or winter, it’s a hidden gem. And perfect for a wet weather day walk.
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
The Wild Trail is a brilliantly fun and free 1.5 mile adventure loop through the ancient woodlands of Sizegh Castle’s grounds. There are ropes to follow, walls to climb, holes to scramble through, logs to balance on, tree stumps to jump across, a tree swing and much much more.
The free Farm Trail at Low Sizergh Barn takes you on an easy 1.75 mile circular (muddy!) walk through the ancient woodland
A brilliant, easy and exciting walk to the “fairy steps” at Beetham.
We had an absolutely brilliant family walk today at Latrigg, just outside of Keswick. It was wonderful for multiple reasons… free car parking, parking close to the summit, 360 degree views, glorious sunshine and snow!
We will continue our mission to find the cave at Arnside Knott. Please do let us know if you have any more information on it!
One of the great things about the walk to Arnside Knott, is that you can drive up half of it, which made it infinitely easier for our 3 year old’s little legs! Although if you want to, you can of course walk from Arnside village itself.
If you wish to simply circumnavigate Dunmallard Hill, then go through the gate next to the large sign post and turn either left of right. This will take you all the way round and back to the car park. You can also follow the path that takes you to the top from here.
