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.
Today we completed a very wet and boggy circular walk up to Simpson Ground Reservoir, south west of Bowland Bridge. The views are beautiful and probably even more brilliant is the fact that we saw not a single other human being on the entire 3.4 mile walk!
