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

Bluebells at Cowclose Wood, Bowland Bridge

If you’ve ever wanted to see a million bluebells, Cowclose Wood, near Bowland Bridge is the place to go in late April/early May time. It is stunningly beautiful, and the bluebells are so expansive, covering a massive area in both Clowclose and Colehowe Woods.


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.
