Welly Walks

Rutland Water

Normanton Church.

If glistening lakes, upon a dusky orange sunset and historical fairytale like church is your ideal walk. Then this location is for you. Be prepared to take your little ones wellies and a change of clothes.



A beautiful Elizabethan historic building, which was destined to never be finished. We’re so lucky to have this on our doorstep, attending quite a few of their events over this year since being members. A woodland walk, pond dipping, audio history tours and fun family friendly activities. We have always left feeling happy and tired!


Stowe – Gothic Temple.

Slightly unprepared for the true extent of this absolutely breath taking adventure. Stowe offers some of the grandest buildings and sculptures I ever did see. The entire ground is so immaculate. As described on the website ‘Gardening on the grandest scale’, a statement well and truly understated. We are sure to go back prepared and taking a picnic to finish our discovery!

Rushden Lakes

Scenery at Rushden Lakes.

Shopping, dining, cinema and kiddie play zones from 360 play to indoor climbing and trampolining. Rushden Lakes has plenty to offer in one location, but don’t become too overwhelmed and forget to take the foot trail around the stunning location secretly hidden! The views of the Nene valley are gentle and quiet, but can get quite muddy after rainfalls and winter season, so come prepared with wellies, if not Joules located on site can help with that!

Stanwick Lakes.

Stanwick Lakes adventure playground

For all your adventure needs, Stanwick Lakes has you covered. But be sure to get there early as this place is always busy, the buzz of summer excitement and smell of tropical suncreams fill the air! Hosting many of events, half term clubs, crafts and bird watching experiences. As well as adventure trail and playground with friendly little legs walks. Your fun is bound to last all day! Picnic areas located on site or eating at the cafe with hot or cold choices you can never come underprepared, they have you covered for a brilliant experience. * Be sure to have a change of clothes!!!

Salcey Forest.

Gruffalo Trail

If you go down to the woods today, you’ll sure have a surprise! This is a lovely ancient woodland that all your family will enjoy, wellie splashing’glore! If your little ones are keen explorers, you’ll love the trails designed for the littlest of legs, From the Gruffalo to Zog trails. If you’re looking for outdoor play there are many around the forest but the main one is located by the forest cafe, hot chocolate whilst watching your children explore and play, perfect Sunday outing!
