June already, does anyone else feels like 2019 is speeding by?
Love the summertime, BBQ's, days out, light nights, turning my garden into an office bliss. Feels like we blinked and it was another half-term break, this time we went off to the Lake district for some walking, good foods and fishing haha well not me on the fishing side of things...
Places we visited and very much recommend:
Set in a stately 17th-century mansion on 34 acres of grounds, this modest Christian hotel is next to Rydal Mount & Gardens, former home of poet William Wordsworth, and 2 miles from Ambleside.
Airy TV-free rooms include tea and coffee making equipment, and en suite bathrooms or shared facilities. There's also a cottage with a kitchen, plus 3 wooden huts.
Kendal, known earlier as Kirkby in Kendal or Kirkby Kendal, is a market town and civil parish within the South Lakeland District of Cumbria, England
The Apple Pie - Bakery - YUM YUM - Ambleside.
Located in Ambleside, in the heart of Lake District, we are an independent, family run, Café and Bakery. Since it’s opening in 1975 The Apple Pie has grown in size and popularity, but we still keep our traditional values at heart, serving fresh and quality products everyday to regular visitors, passing tourists and loyal locals.
Toooooo many to pick from, we did local walks around Ambleside and Lake Windermere.
