Today’s walk was a short (less than 1 mile) adventure to see if we could find the Fairies Cave, near Whitbarrow Scar in South Lakeland. It’s a small but very interesting limestone cave, hidden in the beautiful woodland surrounding Whitbarrow Scar.
Silver Bay on Ullswater, otherwise known as the “secret beach”, is an absolutely beautiful spot for a hot, sunny day. The walk in from Patterdale is approx 1.5 miles, with stunning views out over the lake, Glenridding and the Helvelyn range.
Today we visited the Coniston Coppermine valley and admired its rugged, worked landscape, waterfalls and also explored a couple of the tunnels.
This beautiful 3.5 mile circular walk around Little Langdale takes in two amazing caves, Hodge Close and Cathedral Quarry. It’s the perfect walk for a family adventure. Don’t forget your torches!
This is a beautiful, 4.75 mile, mostly flat walk to see the Bronze Age stone circle, Long Meg, and then to explore Lacy’s Caves on the River Eden near Penrith.
Today’s walk through Borrowdale was a truly amazing family adventure! It had everything that the kids (and adults alike) loved… a cave, large boulders to clamber over, stepping stones across a river, shoreline to throw stones in, an exciting scree slope climb, toasting marshmallows on an open fire and amazing views over the Borrowdale valley and Derwentwater. This walk is definitely one our family favourites so far.
Kong Adventure is perfect for the family in wet weather (even dry!) It has a hard play area, caves, indoor climbing, ice wall, a cafe and offers outdoor experiences too. We really enjoyed the family zone where the kids played for ages in the hard play and caves whilst we had a coffee!
There is a cave about half way along Barker Scar, at Old Park Wood, near Holker in the South Lakes. Aside from the cave, there is plenty to enjoy and explore on this stretch of Morecambe Bay / River Leven estuary coastline.
