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.

Sale Fell, Bassenthwaite

Sale Fell, at the north end of Bassenthwaite in the Lake District is a great fell for little legs! And it’s a Wainwright, with the peak at 359 metres (1177 feet). We did a 2 mile circular walk (option to extend to 3 miles), on mostly wide open grassy paths. It offers spectacular views of the northern fells, Bassenthwaite Lake and Derwentwater.
