1 – 2.5 miles

Walks that are between 1 and 2.5 miles in distance

Lowther Castle, near Penrith

Lowther Castle, near Penrith is a fantastic family day out.  Suitable for picnics, long walks round the extensive gardens and of course, possibly the country’s best children’s adventure playground: the Lost Castle.  


Spout Force, Whinlatter

We stopped off to have a look at Spout Force, just to the west of Whinlatter Forest.  This walk is best done when the leaves are not on the trees!  If you go up there in the height of summer you’re only likely to see a tiny slither of waterfall inbetween all the trees and shrubs.
