Buckstones Jump, Rydal

Buckstones Jump near Rydal has been on our list for a long time, and finally we made it there today!  What an awesome little spot!  It’s a short walk up from Rydal and offers a great little beach area, with stones on one side and grass on the other.  There’s waterfalls and pools to swim or paddle in and plenty of rocks to climb and explore.

Levens Hall Deer Park, Levens

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!

Castle Crag and Caves, Borrowdale

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.
