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

Eskdale Stepping Stones, Steam Train & Camping Pod

We had a very adventurous family weekend in Eskdale, in the western Lake District. We started with a trip on the Ravensglass to Eskdale Steam Railway, went fro a lovely walk and ended up staying in a camping pod at Eskdale Campsite


Sale Fell, Bassenthwaite

Sale Fell, at the north end of Bassenthwaite in the Lake District is a great fell for little legs! And it’s a Wainwright, with the peak at 359 metres (1177 feet). We did a 2 mile circular walk (option to extend to 3 miles), on mostly wide open grassy paths. It offers spectacular views of the northern fells, Bassenthwaite Lake and Derwentwater.
