Stickle Tarn, Langdale

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.

Walla Crag, Borrowdale

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.

Arnside Knott

One of the great things about the walk to Arnside Knott, is that you can drive up half of it, which made it infinitely easier for our 3 year old’s little legs! Although if you want to, you can of course walk from Arnside village itself.

Sour Milk Gill, Buttermere

Starting from the pay and display car park, walk round the Fish Hotel onto the path towards the lakes. Follow the path and when you get a fork, take the left path which will lead you to the lake. With the lake in front of you, turn right which will then lead you to the base of the Sour Milk Gill falls.
