Felltarn Friends: The Perfect Family Guide to the Lake District


Of course there are thousands of experiences to be had in the Lake District, and often the most challenging part of your visit can be choosing what to do! There are all those fells to climb and lakes to go boating on (well, which boat would you prefer? Kayak? Canoe? Sailing boat? Steamer? Rowing Boat…?) Wow! Where to start?!

Why not start with the “Felltarn Friends Lake District Adventures” family guide to the Lake District? It really is the perfect way to plan your trip and will entertain the family for hours with the puzzles, games, crafts, facts, jokes, ideas for fabulous family days out, colouring-in sections, and of course the Felltarn Friends themselves: our eight delightful animal characters who feature throughout the book’s 96 beautifully designed pages.

Each of the Felltarn Friends have their own unique personality with favourite Lake District locations, favourite foods (very important in this area!) and favourite activities. We’re sure you and your children will fall in love with these characters – you must see our range of country gifts including limited edition handmade patchwork dolls of Alice Rabbit and Harry Fox!

So what sets the Felltarn Friends family guide book apart from the multitude of other offerings on the shelves about the Lake District? Well this family guide to the Lake District takes a gentle approach to introducing what the National Park has available to families with young children. We don’t focus on the challenging fell walks and extreme adventure experiences, as we know there are so many of you who find the idea of tackling Helvellyn with your four-year-old just a little bit terrifying! Instead, the Felltarn Friends suggest places that are suitable for pushchairs, gentle strolls around lake shore, great places to dabble in a little pond dipping and fun attractions in beautiful locations with adventure playgrounds.

The information we give you is presented in the form of an activity book – perfect for keeping young minds entertained and inspired to visit the locations featured in the puzzle or game on the page. We’ve even popped postcodes in there for your sat-nav if you’re unfamiliar with the area – and some all important safety tips for being out and about in the Lake District.

Each page has been designed by the uber talented Claire Mansfield in her unmistakable country-chic style. This gives book a quality image and feel, making it a great gift or memento – not just a book to use and throw away, it really is something special.

So, if you’re planning a visit to this corner of England, you absolutely must get your hands on a copy of this ultimate family guide to the Lake District – where will the Felltarn Friends take you…?
