The Lake District

Where do I start….apart from the fact that both my husband and I love the Lake District and its very much our happy place….in fact we’d love to move there!

You see its half term or has been this week and we’ve just got back from a fabulous few days in the Lake District. We also had the most amazing weather too – those crisp sunny days where there isn’t a cloud in the sky but winter is nipping at your heels. When the weather is like that, it makes the Lakes sparkle even more!

The view from Sawrey House Hotel

We stayed at our usual hotel – Sawrey House Hotel which for us now feels like home from home we’ve stayed there so many times, but we just love it. The hotel itself is so beautiful, with so much history and character which has been lovingly restored by the owner David. The staff are always so welcoming, the food wonderful and then there is the view from the dining room which is just simply stunning!

The hotel is situated in the beautiful lakeland village of Near Sawrey, home to Beatrix Potter & her home which is now looked after by the National Trust

Beatrix Potter’s Hilltop

Near Sawrey is just so magical, I’m a huge Beatrix Potter fan and just love being in the same village where she wrote and created all her beautiful books. Its a really quaint village, we go walking if the weather is nice but most of the time we love just sitting in the local pub Bank Arms

Tower Bank Arms

There is nothing better than sitting by their roaring fire drinking a pint of their local pale ale!

The pub also does the most amazing food and also offers accommodation too.

There is just so much to do in the Lake District, that you really can never be bored. Another of our favourite haunts is Keswick and especially Derwentwater. An old Market town it has so many gorgeous shops, cafes plus of course its markets. Derwentwater is stunning in any season.

….until the next trip
