Reasons for trip


We have just returned from a wonderful few days in the Lake District. Our accommodation was a 16/17th century cottage, where once William Wordsworth lodged. The room we had was at ground level and in the heart of the beautiful village with several country pubs within a few yards. There was all the charm of a country village right on the doorstep with ample tea and cake stops, gift shops and of course, a selection of the most amazing walks. Our room had the most amazing ultra-king size bed but still left plenty of room to move. We had a bang up to date television with inbuilt DVD. Wi-fi to die for was free of charge. The breakfasts were delicious and made up of locally sourced products. We had wonderful weather and completed two, five mile walks which started from our doorstep. The Lakeland scenery needs no introduction but it lived up to its billing and more. Lovely lambs frolicked in the fields as we passed by. At the side of Tarn Hows we heard a cuckoo- a rare sound indeed today and the soft hammering of woodpeckers from the nearby trees. This must be the best time of all to visit this wonderful place with all the newness of the countryside and wildlife within. If you do not like walking, there is much to do nearby with the National Trust's Wray Castle a short distance away which would be a lovely spot for a picnic. Don't forget to visit Hill Top, the home of Beatrix Potter at the next village. We dined at the local country pubs each evening and were able to have a few glasses of drinks, knowing that we had our room waiting just a few minutes walk away.
