Morecambe – Happy Mount Park, Prom & Beach

Although technically not a family walk in the Lake District, this was a fantastic family day out, which also involved a walk along the wide, safe prom.  You could walk as little or as far as you liked!  The day involved some time at Happy Mount Park in the splash park and a stint on the beach.

Hay Stacks

Today was our 100th family walk in the Lake District.  And it was an epic!  Hay Stacks stands 597 metres (1958 feet) in height.  But starting at Honister gives you an advantage as that is 332 metres (1089 feet).  This also makes it a Wainwright fell, to tick off the list! It is 2.2 miles there.  We did an out and back so 4.4 miles in total.

Wansfell Pike, Ambleside

Wansfell Pike is a Wainwright fell, offering stunning panoramic views. It stands at 482 metres (1581 feet), just outside of Ambleside in the southern Lake District.  It is a big fell for little legs, and a continuous steep climb.  This route is an out and back, totalling 3 miles.  We’d recommend this walk for older, more capable children walkers or those with young babies that are being carried. 

Grange over Sands Promenade

Grange over Sands is a lovely little town, with an absolutely perfect promenade for a short or long family walk.  It has a cafe, playground, skate park and is traffic free and virtually flat, so ideal for all types of wheels, including pushchairs and wheelchairs.
