Lake District: Local Activities Ideal for Kids

The summer holidays are approaching and the question on everyone’s mind is, “how do we entertain the kids?” Well, here at Castle Green in the beautiful town of Kendal, we may just have the answer. From woodland adventures to wildlife parks, the surrounding area is full of fun things to do for the whole family....

Something Indoors

Head to Kendal Climbing Wall. The centre offers a great range of indoor climbing suitable for adults and children alike. As a family, we'd suggest making a group booking, then you will have your own instructor to guide each of you through the session. There’s a range of walls to climb, so no matter what your ability there will be something for everyone. Just remember to book online before visiting!

Interacting with the Wildlife

The Lake District is popular among many for its abundance of wildlife. At the Lakeland Farm Park, you can meet friendly farm animals, tackle the maze, or race around the go-kart track. The kids will love it!

Up in the Trees

For those who prefer a birdseye view of our woodland, Treetop Trek offers just that. Located in near Windermere, Treetop Trek allows you to weave your way through the treetops, along balance beams and swinging logs, ending at the 250 Triple zip descent to the shore of Windermere. Sounds pretty exciting, huh! 

However you choose to spend your days, we can all agree that after exciting activities, the kids will be well and truly tired out! To end the day on a high head back to Castle Green for a hearty meal at our family friendly pub, Alexander's.
