10 Walks The Kids Will Love
It’s that time of year when we are all looking for fun ways to fill the days. On a dry day nothing beats getting everyone outside for a bit of fresh air and exercise. But, where do you go? In my experience with a 9 and a 7 year old, they need places which engage them. As adults we are quite happy wandering along quiet farm tracks or through the local woodland, but kids – my two in any case – quickly get bored and generally don’t get far before they start asking where the park is or when they can have a snack! I have tried and tested all of the walks below so they come with my personal recommendation and a big thumbs up from my boys!
This short circular walk around the Caaf Water doubles up as a fairy trail and has several impressive waterfalls. Set within a tranquil wooded glen, the gorge is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest because of the unique and interesting rocks it contains. There are picnic benches close to the small car park so get the sandwiches packed!
