Hi We're off to the Lake District at the end of September, staying near Windermere. Does anybody know of any good walks we can do with a pushchair? It is an all-terrain one so off road is fine, provided it isn't too bumpy and no need to lift the buggy over stiles etc.
Shanini, there is a specific book of walks you can do in the lake district with a pushchair here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/All-Terrain-Pushchair-Walks-Lakeland/dp/1850588171/ref=sr11?ie=UTF8&s=book s&qid=1251896986&sr=8-1 we had it at our holiday cottage and it was very good.
Well, we spent a week based near Ambleside walking with our 5 yr old and 2 yr old. Just print off a choice of walks off here. My favourite walk was Tarn Hows. We put our 2 yr old in a backpack to walk to Jenkin's Crag and to Stockghyll Waterfalls which I would also recommend (cannot do these in a buggy though)
We have walked a lot with an off road pushchair with ds 1 and 2 as my inlaws live near Kendal. The All terrain pushchair walks books are good, the north lakeland one in particular is excellent. Check out the Ullswater walk which involves a boat ride back to pooley bridge - fresh hot scones at the Howton hotel just before you get on the boat, they come out of the oven at about 4pm. Yum. We have done this walk 4 times, it's a fave. Take a picnic as there isn't always refreshments available en-route when you want them on a lot of the walks.
Thanks for the suggestions - the miles without stiles web site especially looks great. Thanks Selby! We shall print a few of these routes off and take them with us. All we need now is for this nice weather to continue!
