Picnic Spot

Sandscale Haws aka Roanhead

Sandscale Haws National Nature Reserve is an outstanding coastal dune habitat on the Duddon Estuary which supports a wealth of unique wildlife and boasts stunning views of the Lake District Fells. We had an absolutely amazing day, walking along the shoreline, climbing up and sliding down the sand dunes, building sandcastles, splashing in the water (at high tide) and picnic’ing.  You could also go beach combing, fly a kite, skim stones or bird watch.

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!

Sella Rock, south of Ulpha

Sella Rock, about a mile south of Ulpha village, is a beautiful little picnic spot. We’ve driven past here many a time, on the way to or from our family walks.  And we’ve often seen people picnic’ing and frolicking by the river bank.  Well today we finally made a stop there!
