Aside from plenty of time outdoors (luckily we’d packed waterproof coats and trousers, not a great look but better than being damp and cold), top of my to do list was also a visit to Hill Top House, the home of Beatrix Potter. Complete with Mr Mcgregor style garden and the dolls houses and rooms that feature in her gorgeous illustrations; I could quite happily have moved in. We were also lucky enough to visit the local country club (thanks to an agreement they had with our b&b) and spent a few hours in their very posh pool with a sauna and hot tub looking out over the lake district scenery. I’ve never been to a country club before, but could definitely get used to it!
I’d love to go to the area again, shame it’s SUCH a long drive from home.

Apparently someone forgot their picture frame...
Trying to avoid the puddles, but there were so many that I soon gave up - boots are supposed to get muddy anyway!
