"South Lakeland Walks with Children" is a book for parents whose children may not be as keen to go walking as they are. South Lakeland offers some spectacular walking country; with gentle fells and lush valleys, excellent panoramic views, good tourist amenities and plenty to amuse the children. The twenty circular and varied walks are spread across the whole of the Southern Lakes. Each one has been researched and written with children in mind; with many places of interest along the way. The routes vary in length, but feature 'Escape Routes' at various points along the way, so they can be tailored to suit the needs, time and energy of each family. Clear, concise, yet thorough directions are given, along with listings of toilets and baby changing facilities where available. The book contains a text of interest to children and includes various features to keep them occupied and aware of their surroundings. Some of the routes can be adapted to be pushchair friendly.
