We decided to take a short trip to the Lake District for the remainder of the bank holiday weekend. We drove up on the Sunday and went straight to Sizergh Castle near Kendal. We were too late to visit the castle, but we embarked on the 'Wild Trail' through the woods. We followed the clues through the woods and had a thoroughly good time. The woods were carpeted with wild garlic and because it was late in the day we had the whole place to ourselves. It was magical! At the end of the trail was a fabulous tree swing and the Podlings had a great time playing on it. We spent quite a while on the swing before heading out the woods and back to the car. The trail was beautifully designed and the Podlings had a great time. We would definitely do it again, and in fact the Podlings liked it so much they kept asking if we could go back the following day!
