We set off early Friday morning in convoy... DS1 driving DS2 and Big Dog and hubby and I with Little Dog in the other car. Why two cars? Well last year it was rather cramped with all six of us, and well rather a horrible drive, so when DS1 said he wanted to drive up we thought, Why Not?! What a lovely peaceful trip up! We arrived early afternoon and were thrilled to find our lovely little holiday cottage was in the countryside.
Very welcoming inside the cottage with flowers in every room - even the bathrooms, a pack of biscuits, a bottle of milk, a paper and a magazine. What a difference it makes when the owners make it that little bit more special.
The stone wall surrounding the property.
Hubby and Big Dog enjoying the garden.
Bumblies busy in the flowers...
A butterfly that came in the house - let out the window after the photo.
Hubby and I went for a walk with Little Dog in the afternoon down to the local village of Natland.
Lovely church and village green.
More stone walls!
Then back home to Yaffles to cook dinner.
Day Two - A local walk and Windermere.
