Outdoor Fun

KID-FRIENDLY WALK | Carsington Water – Derbyshire

Carsington Water is one of my favourite places to walk. The circular walk is about eight miles long and takes roughly two to three hours (not including time at the pub en route!) so might be a bit much for little legs nor is it entirely pram/pushchair friendly. However, there are plenty of other walks that can be done from the same starting point, which would be suitable for buggies and little legs.

KID-FRIENDLY WALK | Fewston and Swinsty Reservoirs – North Yorkshire

I love taking the kids up for a walk or a run around the Fewston and Swinsty reservoirs. The scenery is stunning and if you go early enough you can find baby deer on the pathways and the reservoir so still it looks like a perfect mirror reflecting the skyline. We love taking a picnic and sitting on one of the many benches around the pathways and then the kids love to spend hours skimming pebbles on one of the small beaches around Swinsty.

KID-FRIENDLY WALK | Bingley St Ives Estate – West Yorkshire

Since becoming dog owners we’ve tried to find places that keep children and four-legged friends equally happy and Bingley St Ives Estate does just that. What we’ve found is that the promise of a playground helps to keep the walking momentum going! The adventure play area here is a massive hit for Lyla – it’s really well thought-out and keeps her entertained for ages with its high towers, tyre swings, rope bridges and zip wire.

KID-FRIENDLY WALK | Fountains Abbey & Studley Royal – North Yorkshire

This UNESCO World Heritage Site is full of beautifully manicured gardens, follies, and water features to ancient ruins and parkland with free-roaming deer. The kids might not fully appreciate the breathtaking beauty of Studley Royal and the history of the 12th-century Cistercian abbey but they’ll love the huge timber play area, nature-spotting, tunnels and climbing all over the abbey ruins.
