/ camping/climbing ideas with a 3yr old?
For that, here are two campsite suggestions:
- North Lees Campsite just below Plantation boulders, and walking distance from Hathersedge.
- Capel Curig: if you turn towards Llanberis in CC (passing the Plas-y-Brenin centre on the left) the first basic 'farmer's field' campsite on the left is a good one. It's right across the road from the excellent RAC boulders, you can swim in the lake, rent a fire-box etc. Brilliant place.
National trust campsite great langdale
small kids play area
child friendly pubs for meals
Side pike-blea tarn road cattle grid - just above this is a slab (great rock)which is fine for three years olds - never seen anyone on it much
also the walk to side pike summit has a series of rocky steps which entertained all of my kids over the years
