The Hiking Household recently spoke with Alex, our wonderful Media & Marketing coordinator, to find out which Lake District walks she has been enjoying since becoming a new parent.
Are you wondering how to get out and enjoy The Lakes this summer with your new baby?
Planning a day-out with a baby can be a daunting task to begin with – let’s be honest, even getting out of the door is a challenge some days!
But it’s SO worth it – the fresh air, family time and the change of scene are the perfect tonic for mind, body and soul.
After a few weeks of newborn loveliness (and sleeplessness!), my husband and I were keen to start planning some slightly more adventurous trips out. Pre-baby, I was a regular fell walker, but my knowledge of the more accessible trails in The Lake District was quite limited. So The Hiking Household website really came to the rescue!
I’ve outlined my top picks below.

Baby’s First Lake District Walk
For our little one’s first walk in The Lakes, we headed to Keswick for a 2-mile pram walk that gifts you with beautiful views of Derwentwater.
It’s a great first walk to take as a new family, as you can enjoy the beautiful scenery and feel like you’ve really escaped the town, whilst still being extremely close to civilization!
Older babies will love looking at the leaves on the trees along the way. For more details please click here.
Short Pram Walk
The first time I went to Tarn Hows, it took my breath away. It is the most magical place. Charming, beautiful and with a very zen atmosphere, it’s the perfect place for a chilled pram walk. It’s a flat 2 mile walk, with plenty of parking and public toilets.
