A brilliant, easy and exciting walk to the “fairy steps” at Beetham.
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
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.
The “mushroom” at Scout Scar, in between Underbarrow and Kendal in the south east Lake District is a popular, and rewarding easy walk for locals and tourists alike.
Cunswick Scar is an easy 3 mile circular walk, with only a small amount of gradient. Beautiful views over Kentmere, the SE lakes and Kendal.
Seat How Summit from Whinlatter Forest is a great family walk. 3.5 mile circular walk following easy to navigate trails. Amazing views over Derwentwater and Keswick and an adventure playground and cafe to finish!
