A lovely week in The Lake District
Perfect week in the Lake District.
So from the 26th March until the 31st we spent a lovely week in one of our favourite places, the Lake District. We nearly always book our dog friendly cottage through Lakeland Hideaways. A great company based in Hawkshead. They have a large selection of dog friendly cottages available and this time we chose Tabitha in Near Sawrey. The cottage was just five minutes from Hill Top, Beatrix Potter’s home.
We arrived on the Sunday and the weather was glorious. Had a quick walk around Elterwater. Back to the Cottage and lit the real fire and settled down for the night. The next two days we had stunning weather again and ended up in Grasmere and had a lovely walk around the Lake, we also called into The Riverside Cafe for soup and a coffee, had a mooch around Windermere, another coffee, an ice cream and bought some books and films for the Cottage from some Charity shops. Also found a great little book on dog friendly walks with cafe’s and tea rooms around the Lakes.
The next day, with book in hand we drove to Skelwith Bridge and followed the walk up to Loughrigg Fell, lovely walk that took about an hour and ended up at Chester by The River, a really great place for dogs with some amazing cakes and food.
Quite a bit of rain on the Wednesday so we drove to Rydal Mount for a short walk near the Waterfall at the back of the Tea room. Then drove to Kendal for some more shops and back to the Cottage for a warm fire. Pouring with rain on Thursday so sat reading and chatting with friends before heading out to Sawrey and a two hour walk along the coast, Dexter loved it. It stayed dry for an hour and we were soaked by the time we had finished our walk. But back to the cottage to a roaring fire.
On Friday we drove to Grasmere as the weather didn’t look too promising, had a walk around the village and found a great Tae room called Baldry’s, the most amazing cakes and the food looked delicious. A great week and we hope to return again soon.
