My eldest had asked if we could visit Ilkley Moor and the Cow and Calf rocks, I think this is because he knows there’s lots of places he can leap about and streams to dip feet in. He seems to be the one that needs most persuading to go out for a walk (although once out he loves it) so when he suggested somewhere I was happy to go with that. It’s also not far from family so if the weather turns nasty there’s somewhere near to retreat to!
After our walk we treated ourselves to hot chocolate and warm pasties in the café in the carpark. With blankets and heating lamps we were nice and toasty. I grew up in this area and when I was little and visited Ilkley Moor there was just a carpark and no facilities unless you went up the road to the pub!
Do you let your kids choose where to walk?
