This is a gently undulating, but mostly flat, 3 mile circular walk along the River Kent, just outside of Kendal, up to Force Falls at the top and back down to Levens Hall in the south. If you don’t fancy a long walk, then just take a few hundred metres walk to the river shoreline and have a picnic and a paddle!
A new adventure playground has opened at Brockhole-on-Windermere (Feb-18). There’s plenty of things to see, do and enjoy here, including a nice cafe and lakeshore.
Brandlehow is an easy, low level walk, along the shores of Derwentwater in the Lake District. This mostly flat (but not pushchair friendly) circular walk is about 2.3 miles and can be started at any point on the route.
Kettlewell is a beautiful little picnic spot just off the Borrowdale Road, on the south east shores of Derwentwater. Free for National Trust members, and offering a pretty little beach and local walks.
Today’s walk through Borrowdale was a truly amazing family adventure! It had everything that the kids (and adults alike) loved… a cave, large boulders to clamber over, stepping stones across a river, shoreline to throw stones in, an exciting scree slope climb, toasting marshmallows on an open fire and amazing views over the Borrowdale valley and Derwentwater. This walk is definitely one our family favourites so far.
Coniston Water is one of our favourite lakes in the Lake District, and is accessible from many areas. Here is the perfect family picnic, based near the Bluebird Cafe in Coniston itself.
Fell Foot Park is an absolutely fantastic picnic spot on the shores of southern Windermere. In fact, it’s more than just a picnic spot, it’s a whole day out of you want it to be.
Blea Tarn is a beautiful and quiet spot in between Little Langdale and Great Langdale. We did a circular 3 mile walk, taking in Blea Tarn and Side Pike, which offered amazing 360 degree views.
