Blea Tarn and Side Pike, Langdale

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.

Walla Crag, Borrowdale

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.

Bowkerstead, Grizedale

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!
