Today’s walk took us to Reston Scar, which is just above Staveley village. It’s a beautiful 2 mile circular loop walk, taking in Black Crag and Reston Scar. With views out over Ings, Staveley and the mountains beyond. It finishes in Staveley village playground and / or the Eagle & Child pub!

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.
A new adventure playground has opened at Brockhole-on-Windermere (Feb-18). There’s plenty of things to see, do and enjoy here, including a nice cafe and lakeshore.
Lowther Castle, near Penrith is a fantastic family day out. Suitable for picnics, long walks round the extensive gardens and of course, possibly the country’s best children’s adventure playground: the Lost Castle.
Fell Foot Park is an absolutely fantastic picnic spot on the shores of southern Windermere. In fact, it’s more than just a picnic spot, it’s a whole day out of you want it to be.
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.
