Levens Hall Deer Park, Levens

This is a gently undulating, but mostly flat, 3 mile circular walk along the River Kent, just outside of Kendal, up to Force Falls at the top and back down to Levens Hall in the south. If you don’t fancy a long walk, then just take a few hundred metres walk to the river shoreline and have a picnic and a paddle!

Bluebells at Rannerdale

Rannerdale is commonly known as the Valley of the Bluebells, although it is a fantastic walk at any time of year.  If you want to go when the bluebells are out, you’ll need to go at some point in May.  There are three options available on this walk: 1) an easy, mostly flat 0.5 mile out and back (1 mile in total) to see the bluebells. 2) a moderate 3 mile circular walk which doesn’t take in Rannerdale Knotts summit but does go through the bluebells or 3) a steep, quite tricky but very rewarding 2.6 mile route that takes in the bluebells and Rannerdale Knotts summit, which is a Wainwright Fell.
