Mirehouse and Gardens, near Bassenthwaite are a fantastic place in the Lake District for a family walk and adventure! We did a 1.5 mile loop walk that also takes in the 4 adventure play areas in Mirehouse Gardens.
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.
Claife Heights Viewing Station (and cafe!) is such a fantastic, and family friendly place to explore. We caught the ferry across the lake, from Ferry Nab in Bowness on Windermere.
If you wish to simply circumnavigate Dunmallard Hill, then go through the gate next to the large sign post and turn either left of right. This will take you all the way round and back to the car park. You can also follow the path that takes you to the top from here.
Friar’s Crag, Keswick is a nice easy walk, offering stunning views of Derwentwater and the surrounding fells, including Catbells.
Loughrigg Fell is a great little family Wainwright to climb. Easy to navigate from White Moss or the A591 layby.
Easedale Tarn and Sour Milk Gill from Grasmere is a lovely circular walk of approx 4 miles
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.
