Oh I do like to be beside the Lake Side!

So this week was a little different I spent it in the beautiful Lake District with John, his three children, then later in the week his Mum & Dad came down too. We stayed in a beautiful cottage in Braithwaite somewhere John came with his Grandma and Grandad as a child.

I know this is a little off subject (and not about Lincolnshire) but here is a list of places I’d recommend visiting in the lakes:

Whinlatter Forest: this is an awesome place for adults and kids. So many fun things to do including Go Ape and lots of different trails through the forest. Also some BEAUTIFUL views over the lakes.

Derwent Water (Keswick): Derwent is one of my favourite places to go in the lakes. We hired a boat this time which is something I’ve not done before and a great way to cruise across the lake. We have previously done the walk around Derwent Water which took around six hours, with lots of places to see along the way (I won’t ruin the surprise).

Lingholme Kitchen: we stumbled upon this place last time we visited the lakes at New Year and was great to go back and visit again. It’s a lovely little cafe in the middle of the woods, they have a Beatrix Potter garden and do yummy homemade sausage rolls. Also a fab Earl Grey tea!

The Lake District is a very special place for me, being there this week has made me realise how much I love being inthe outdoors and how good it makes me feel being out in such beautiful surroundings, in the fresh air. So, we have made a promise that we will find some time each week to get outside.

Do you have any places to recommend for local walks? I’d love to hear about them.

Have a fab week!
