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!
Today’s walk was a short (less than 1 mile) adventure to see if we could find the Fairies Cave, near Whitbarrow Scar in South Lakeland. It’s a small but very interesting limestone cave, hidden in the beautiful woodland surrounding Whitbarrow Scar.
We headed for an easy 1 mile walk in Brown Robin Woods Nature Reserve, in Grange over Sands. And, being the end of April, the bluebells were out, which made this walk very pretty indeed.
Locals know this place most commonly as “Nannypie Lane”, although officially it’s called Wilson Place. This stretch of the River Kent is near Sedgwick, on the outskirts of Kendal and is a fantastic place to have a family walk and / or a picnic on a hot sunny day.
Today we visited the Coniston Coppermine valley and admired its rugged, worked landscape, waterfalls and also explored a couple of the tunnels.
Today’s 2 mile family walk took us up a “Wainwright”… Holme Fell, which lies between Skelwith Bridge and Coniston. Views from the top stretch right out over Coniston Water in one direction and the Langdale Pikes in the other.
Rydal Hall is a beautiful, and often quiet place, in the sometimes very busy Lakes, which provides everything required for a fantastic fun family walk. With waterfalls, formal gardens, woodland, fairy trails, the sculpture path and no entry fee, we have always wondered why no one has ever truly discovered this secret gem!
Today we did a short, fun, adventurous 1.3 mile geocache walk round Helsington Barrows, just outside of Kendal and very close to Scout Scar…
