A birthday present for Evie’s 1st birthday is a pass to Lowther Park, as friends informed us that it has a fabulous playground for kids – from toddlers up.
We have already made a couple of visits, sometimes with friends, sometimes on our own.
For a picnic on a nice day, Lowther Castle does make for a great backdrop.
There is also LOTS of space for kids to run around, and as Evie gets older, to bike around.
After our picnic we headed to the playground and I was immediately impressed.
With a toddler area, there were some slides that Evie could manage independently and a baby zip wire which she loved.
And a sandpit….
Never mind the endless ramps to run around and explore…
I think this place could keep us busy with fun packed hours for years yet.
More fun at Lowther – 1st Sep
Lowther is becoming one of our regulars for its playground, ease, cafe…. but we hadn’t previously actually explored the castle.
It took over an hour and a lot of cajoling just to get through the entrance, as the gatehouse was so much fun!
And then there were benches to walk on….
And enormous old rooms to explore!
Then finally we buckled up and went to find the slides and swings for the fun to continue!
Here we are at Lowther Castle, all beautifully lit up for their fireworks display.
We walk ‘the loop’ where the trees are lit up beautifully
And Evie can follow the string of lights all the way round!
The fireworks were truely impressive and they lit the castle up even more. Although not included in our passes, it was well worth the money.
We meet Oliver, who looks mildly scary lit up like this!
The little house is just as enticing in the dark to Evie and Oliver as it is in the daytime – we struggle to get them to keep walking on from here!
Having a bit of a boogie – some good music playing whilst the fireworks not happening.
Definitely one to consider, was far better than anticipated.
