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.

Grange over Sands Promenade

Grange over Sands is a lovely little town, with an absolutely perfect promenade for a short or long family walk.  It has a cafe, playground, skate park and is traffic free and virtually flat, so ideal for all types of wheels, including pushchairs and wheelchairs.  

Waterside House Campsite & Pooley Bridge

We spent a couple of nights in the luxurious bell tent at Waterside House Campsite, just south of Pooley Bridge. We used the campsite as our base for our adventures, heading up to Angletarn Pikes on the first day and to Brotherswater on the second.   Not to mention swimming in Ullswater, right outside our tent and playing in the campsite playground with a magnificent backdrop!

Angletarn Pikes, Bannerdale

After camping on the shores of Ullswater, at Waterside House campsite, we were spoilt for choice with walks in the locality.  After much deliberation we decided to go for Angle Tarn and Angletarn Pikes, on Martindale Common, with the hope of seeing some of the red deer.
