Brotherswater, in Patterdale is a beautiful and quiet place to visit. You can do the short, 2.3 mile loop around the water, or if you have very young children, just the walk from the car park to the little beach for a picnic and paddle!
Today’s walk to Stickle Tarn in Langdale was amazingly beautiful. It was also a hard slog up! Don’t be fooled in thinking this short (2 mile) walk is easy. You climb approximately 400 metres in altitude.
The views from the top of Walla Crag, at 379 metres (1243 feet), are simply stunning. And at this height, it’s another Wainwright Fell ticked off the list. Our 5 year old had no problems at all summiting this one, although it is steep in places. But it’s easy to navigate and not too far at 1.75 miles in total.
Elterwater to Skelwith Bride, or vice versa, or even there and back, is a beautiful and easy walk, that is suitable for pushchairs too. It’s approx 1.5 miles each way, with plenty of adventure along the way.
Friar’s Crag, Keswick is a nice easy walk, offering stunning views of Derwentwater and the surrounding fells, including Catbells.
Lanty’s Tarn is a beautiful and accessible spot near Glenridding. Just beyond is the peak of Keldas, which has stunning views over Ullswater.
Bowscale Tarn near Mungrisdale is an easy 3.5 mile out and back walk up to a beautiful and peaceful mountain tarn. The ascent is gradual and the path very easy to navigate.
This walk is to the very quiet and peaceful Small Water, and can be found at the end of Haweswater. The drive along Haweswater is stunningly beautiful, and we stopped several times to take photos.
