Penny Rock Beach, on the shores of Grasmere, is one of our regular family outings. You can combine it with a walk from White Moss, Rydal Caves or up Loughrigg […]
Buckstones Jump near Rydal has been on our list for a long time, and finally we made it there today! What an awesome little spot! It’s a short walk up from Rydal and offers a great little beach area, with stones on one side and grass on the other. There’s waterfalls and pools to swim or paddle in and plenty of rocks to climb and explore.
Today’s walk took us to Reston Scar, which is just above Staveley village. It’s a beautiful 2 mile circular loop walk, taking in Black Crag and Reston Scar. With views out over Ings, Staveley and the mountains beyond. It finishes in Staveley village playground and / or the Eagle & Child pub!
Locals know this place most commonly as “Nannypie Lane”, although officially it’s called Wilson Place. This stretch of the River Kent is near Sedgwick, on the outskirts of Kendal and is a fantastic place to have a family walk and / or a picnic on a hot sunny day.
Today’s 2 mile family walk took us up a “Wainwright”… Holme Fell, which lies between Skelwith Bridge and Coniston. Views from the top stretch right out over Coniston Water in one direction and the Langdale Pikes in the other.
Rydal Hall is a beautiful, and often quiet place, in the sometimes very busy Lakes, which provides everything required for a fantastic fun family walk. With waterfalls, formal gardens, woodland, fairy trails, the sculpture path and no entry fee, we have always wondered why no one has ever truly discovered this secret gem!
Sandscale Haws National Nature Reserve is an outstanding coastal dune habitat on the Duddon Estuary which supports a wealth of unique wildlife and boasts stunning views of the Lake District Fells. We had an absolutely amazing day, walking along the shoreline, climbing up and sliding down the sand dunes, building sandcastles, splashing in the water (at high tide) and picnic’ing. You could also go beach combing, fly a kite, skim stones or bird watch.
Today we did a short, fun, adventurous 1.3 mile geocache walk round Helsington Barrows, just outside of Kendal and very close to Scout Scar…
