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.
Scale Force is a beautiful waterfall near Crummock Water. It’s probably best seen before the tree foliage gets too thick, but it was still worth a visit today.
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.
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.
Seat How Summit from Whinlatter Forest is a great family walk. 3.5 mile circular walk following easy to navigate trails. Amazing views over Derwentwater and Keswick and an adventure playground and cafe to finish!
Easy short climb up Latterbarrow near Outgate and Hawkshead
Loughrigg Fell is a great little family Wainwright to climb. Easy to navigate from White Moss or the A591 layby.
The Stick Man / Gruffalo trail in Grizedale Forest is fun for the kids and easy too. Follow the Ridding Wood trail signs
