One person wrote: “Why does the water look like a rusty colour?” while another wrote: “Why is the water red?” They were quickly reassured, with one of Amanda’s followers replying: “It’s peat in the water,” while another added: “I imagine it's due to run off from the peat soil on the moors.”

Amanda captioned the post: “After an insanely busy time we have been enjoying a cooling off period. We’ve taken to the water but thought it apt that we share some brilliant advice & information from @theoutdoorswimmingsociety via a story on how to enjoy the water safely.”

She said: “The snowflake generation, they can't do anything. They don't know anything about how to look after themselves, or a work ethic, all of that has gone out of the window. It's our fault as parents.

The family star in Channel 5's Our Yorkshire Farm

"If you put your child on a pedestal, with no sense of independence, and think you have got to entertain them the whole time, what can you expect? I rebuff swaddling children, because I want to see them go on and do well and be themselves, whatever that is. I feel like it is their life and all I do is prepare them."
