Kiddiwalks in Cumbria and the Lake District

Kiddiwalks in Cumbria and the Lake District

by: Chris Bagshaw
Here is a full colour book of twenty safe walks in the wonderful landscape of Cumbria and the Lake District, devised specially with children in mind. Packed with fun things to see and do, each route offers a great day out. The routes are circular with not too many hills and climbs, and distances are mostly between 2 and 2.5 miles. Some are suitable for buggies.

There is plenty of variety, including nature trails to follow, caves to explore, waterfalls to wonder at, castles to conquer, rocks to scramble over, beaches to play on and burn off excess energy, and even a miniature mountain to climb.

Each walk includes information to get to the start, distance and estimated time, terrain, and a panel listing fun things to see and do. Each walk features places for refreshments in recommended cafes or family friendly pubs, or alternatively suggestions for picnic places are given. There are sketch maps to support the route finding instructions which are given in numbered paragraphs corresponding to numbers on the map. Ordnance Survey map references are also provided.
