Micro Adventure to Consiton

After a quick, chilly trip to Sizergh Castle, we headed over to Coniston for a wander and a stone throw. It was freezing but also lovely and quiet. We parked in our usual spot and walked the short distance to the waters edge. Straight away the kids were off to look for the best stones…

Garden Adventures with Little Explorers…

You might be starting to think about what things you can do with the little ones when the weather might not be at it’s best. I think having a splash in a river in the rain is great fun, but, I know that isn’t always practical, so, “How can you have Outdoor Adventures Indoors?”
