Topic - Lakes walks with 2.5 year old

Ruth - on 10 Jun 2012

We've got a very active 2 1/2 year old who loves being outside and running around. She can walk 3 km by herself and can be carried for up to about an hour but only on the flat (she is too heavy now to carry up hill!)

We're down in the Lakes for a week in early July and I was hoping for some advice walks that might be suitable for us. I know the Lakes pretty well, having lived there for 5 years and spent most weekends walking and climbing, but a toddler brings extra considerations that I've overlooked before. Our new criteria are:

No / minimal drops on side of path that she can fall off
Up to 40 mins(ish) from Ambleside
Scenic for us, fun for her
Teashops at start/end are good
Water isn't a problem

The Langdale valley should be a good option, and probably Tarn Hows but other ideas gratefully appreciated.

Many thanks
