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.
Today’s walk was a fun and easy 2-2.5 mile out and back (or loop) walk up to the Pepperpot monument in Eaves Wood, Silverdale. The views from the top reach as far as Ingleborough, Morecambe, Warton Crag, Arnside Knott, Morecambe, Heysham, the Blackpool Tower, Barrow and beyond.
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.
Blea Tarn is a beautiful and quiet spot in between Little Langdale and Great Langdale. We did a circular 3 mile walk, taking in Blea Tarn and Side Pike, which offered amazing 360 degree views.
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!
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.
Today we did part of the Forestry Commission’s High Bowkerstead trail, south of Grizedale. The forests were alive today with so much to discover and explore. The foxgloves and thistles were making an appearance, along with hundreds of butterflies, slugs, beetles, spiders and ants!
The Bowder Stone is a popular, and interesting feature near Grange, in the beautiful Borrowdale valley. We decided to combine a visit to this giant, fun rock with a 2.5 mile circular walk up King’s How – Grange Fell, which is a Wainwright, at 392 metres or 1286 feet.
