Fisherplace Gill, Thirlmere

Fisherplace Gill waterfalls, above Thirlmere are absolutely beautiful.  And make for a perfect family walk starting from The King’s Head Hotel.  The walk is less than 1.5 miles in total, out and back. The terrain is a bit rocky, and can be slippy when wet, but is lots of fun for the kids to scramble on! And as this is such a short walk, it’s perfect for little legs.

Kong Adventure, Keswick

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!

The Queen’s Head Hotel, Troutbeck

The Queen’s Head is a former 17th century coaching inn, overlooking the Troutbeck valley, on the Windermere side of the Kirkstone Pass. The building is beautiful, and has maintained all of its character and history.  The food is absolutely delicious.  A blend of home cooked classic pub food, but with a Cumbrian flair.
