Keeping children entertained at this time of the year tends to be a challenge for most parents.
Summer has not yet hit the UK and the rainy, chilly conditions being experienced by most of the country at the moment make coming up with ideas to keep kids occupied a tough task.
However, according to the Huddersfield Daily Examiner, the beautiful rural landscape that characterises much of Yorkshire could be an ideal option for a family activity, regardless of the weather.
The news source indicated that many reservoirs across the region have been transformed into "great leisure sites" over recent years, meaning visiting them could be perfect for those seeking a peaceful, cost-effective day out.
It continued that even though many of these locations were constructed more than a century ago, they remain "impressive feats of engineering" that are likely to interest children.
"You don't need money to have a good family day out. All you need are some warm clothes [and] a picnic," the article concluded.
