Week in the Lakes

may 2017

Since being married, we've always arranged a holiday around our birthdays. This time round, we spent a week in the Lake District. It was the first time the dog had ever come away with us. The idea was for her to enjoy loads of long walks and swimming.

I've been to some amazing places in the world - places i've fallen in love with. However, nowhere will ever be able to compete with the Lakes. I'll save why for another time...

Anyway, we hired a small cottage on a working farm in Shap (South East Lakes) then picked a different walk every day (where Pepper could swim) then find pubs for a drink and a massive fish an chips or big, fat burger afterwards.

The average temperature while we were there was 30°. I've been the Lakes hundreds of times but never seen it looking like it did this week!
