A couple of weeks ago my boyfriend, parents and I (and Daisy, of course) went to the Lake District. We stayed for a few days and had such a lovely time before we headed up to Scotland so I thought I would share some of my photos with you all of our trip.
We were lucky enough to stay in a lovely cottage in Motherby which is roughly about 7 miles from junction 40 of the M6. As you can see it had great views which we could look out on every evening from the living room. It also had lovely enclosed garden that Daisy enjoyed walking around and having a few sniffs. There was also a lovely pub nearby which we had a lovely meal at one evening.
This photo was from the first day we got there. We went to Glenridding which we’d been to on a previous visit and on the way back stopped by Ullswater and managed to capture this beautiful photo.
While we were visiting we were lucky enough to have some lovely weather which enabled us to go and visit some places we hadn’t seen in our last trip in 2014. Maryport was the first new place we went. It is a beautiful little town which was about 45 minutes away from our cottage (maybe longer if you take the wrong turning, oops!). It had a lovely harbour which we enjoyed a walk around even though it was a bit of a windy day when we went.
We also took a trip to Grasmere and went on a lovely walk around the village and by the lake itself. Unfortunately we didn’t get any gingerbread much to my Mum’s disappointment but maybe next time.
On our last full day we visited Caldbeck. Mum had read in the cottage guest book that there was a nice wool shop there so we thought we’d get a few hours there – turns out we got most of the day there. It was a really lovely village and we enjoyed a nice (sometimes steep) walk to see a waterfall.
We had such a nice few days in the Lake District and would definitely go back again.
