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.  

Sella Rock, south of Ulpha

Sella Rock, about a mile south of Ulpha village, is a beautiful little picnic spot. We’ve driven past here many a time, on the way to or from our family walks.  And we’ve often seen people picnic’ing and frolicking by the river bank.  Well today we finally made a stop there!
