So in no particular order here are some of our favourites-
Small Water, Haweswater
A gorgeous spot accessible with a bit of effort from the little ones. Park at Mardale at the far end of Haweswater and follow the rocky path signposted Kentmere via the Nan Bield pass. It's scrambly and good fun with a couple of stepping-stone water crossings. When you get to Small Water you are rewarded with views down to Haweswater and lots of places to sit and picnic and throw in stones. .
Friars Crag, Keswick
Yew Crag, Gowbarrow, Ullswater
Suprise View, Keswick
There are lots of places along the beck that make perfect spots for picnics and paddling. Just don't forget the spare trousers!!
Great Crag, Borrowdale
Park at Rosthwaite and cross the bridge over the beck, head up and up and up some more on the stone staircase through the woods and you will be rewarded at the top with a fab clearing with spectacular views over Borrowdale.
Loughrigg Terrace, Grasmere
Sandwick Bay Ullswater
The drive to Sandwick Bay is almost as much fun as the destination. Drive past Howtown and keep going, you might think you're in the Tour De France at times as you zig zag along through Martindale! Follow the signposts to the hamlet of Sandwick where the road ends, park up (if pos) and enjoy the view from the lovely sandy beach. Gorgeous...
