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.
Today’s easy 1.2 mile walk is one you can do in the rain. The Alphabet Trail at Serpentine Woods in Kendal gives kids and adults alike a sculpture adventure. Don’t forget your wellies!
Brotherswater, in Patterdale is a beautiful and quiet place to visit. You can do the short, 2.3 mile loop around the water, or if you have very young children, just the walk from the car park to the little beach for a picnic and paddle!
Today’s walk to Stickle Tarn in Langdale was amazingly beautiful. It was also a hard slog up! Don’t be fooled in thinking this short (2 mile) walk is easy. You climb approximately 400 metres in altitude.
The views from the top of Walla Crag, at 379 metres (1243 feet), are simply stunning. And at this height, it’s another Wainwright Fell ticked off the list. Our 5 year old had no problems at all summiting this one, although it is steep in places. But it’s easy to navigate and not too far at 1.75 miles in total.
We had a very adventurous family weekend in Eskdale, in the western Lake District. We started with a trip on the Ravensglass to Eskdale Steam Railway, went fro a lovely walk and ended up staying in a camping pod at Eskdale Campsite
If you’ve ever wanted to see a million bluebells, Cowclose Wood, near Bowland Bridge is the place to go in late April/early May time. It is stunningly beautiful, and the bluebells are so expansive, covering a massive area in both Clowclose and Colehowe Woods.
