Wythburn, Thirlmere

This beautiful and quiet 1.75 mile walk takes you along the River Wyth Burn into a peaceful valley at the southern end of Thirlmere reservoir.  It’s a fairly easy walk, with only a slight ascent.  It can be boggy in parts, especially after periods of wet weather, so wear appropriate footwear! The kids will have fun clambering over the many different sized rocks along the way.

Cautley Spout, Howgills

Cautley Spout, England’s highest cascade waterfall, in the Howgills, is a fantastic, easy family walk. You can do the easy 2 mile flat (ish) out and back, or the harder 3 mile route up to the top of the falls themselves. Re-fuel at the quaint Cross Keys Temperance Inn at the bottom.

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.
