Den building is one of our favourite activities and there’s no better place to build a den than in the woods at Wray Castle. Create your own home from home and use it as the base for other wild adventures.
Try your hand at stone skimming on a walk around the lake. Buttermere is the territory of 'Captain Skim', whose record is to skim a stone for 26 skips - can you beat him? There’s a good spot to try out your skimming skills just by the rock tunnel.
Make the most of any windy days by heading to the coast to fly your kite. Wrap up warm and blow away the cobwebs with a stroll along the cliff tops at Whitehaven and see if you can get your kite to dance on the breeze.
With no fewer than 5 bridges to choose from, you can crunch through the woodland and play pooh sticks ‘til the sun goes down here. Don't forget to look up though - Aira Force is one of our most impressive waterfalls, tumbling 65 feet!
Go wild like William and Dorothy Wordsworth used to do. Hunt for surprising creatures around Wordsworth House and Garden and get some tips on how to turn your own backyard into a nature haven. Pick up a free explorer bag from the house every Sunday throughout the autumn.
Stay alert as you wander under the trees in the woodland around Sizergh and see if you can tick number 33 off your list - catch a falling leaf. With thousands of leaves just waiting to drop, are you fast enough to catch one?
Head into the woodland around Allan Bank to see if you can spot the birds who make it their home. Or take a seat on a comfy chair inside the house, grab a pair of binoculars and watch the birds heading to the feeders on the edge of the lawn. Keep your eyes peeled for the elusive red squirrels who visit too.
