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.
