Buckstones Jump, Rydal

Buckstones Jump near Rydal has been on our list for a long time, and finally we made it there today!  What an awesome little spot!  It’s a short walk up from Rydal and offers a great little beach area, with stones on one side and grass on the other.  There’s waterfalls and pools to swim or paddle in and plenty of rocks to climb and explore.

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!
