    Find Family Days Out In Lake District

    Inspire the whole family and take their breath away as you explore all the things to do in the Lake District.

    The scenic backdrop to the glassy lakes might be all the attraction you need for a Lake District family day out, however if you’re looking for a way to encourage the children to explore a bit more then try the Bowness on Windermere Treasure Trail. Download or print your own map and then start solving clues and mysteries to find the treasure, uncovering secrets about the area as you go.

    If you want to get out on the water the Windermere Quays offers private boat hire as well as family cruises if you just want to relax and take it all in, or hire a bike or canoe from Windermere Canoe, Kayak and Bike Hire to help you explore England’s longest lake.

    Bring childhood characters to life at The Beatrix Potter Story, where you’ll meet Mrs. Tiggy Winkle and friends out in the beautiful countryside. Walk through Peter Rabbit’s Garden and see his fine new blue coat hanging up exactly where Mr. McGregor left it. There’s an activity sheet for children to fill out on the way round, a café and a gift shop to take home your favourite book or character.

    If you’re looking for something at a slightly quicker pace then Go Ape Grizedale and Go Ape Tree Top Junior are just four miles away, at Treetop Nets you can wander amongst the treetops with no harness or try abseiling, scrambling or rock climbing at Crags Adventures.
