home again home again

and a fab time was had by all :) the lodge was gorgeous, the nicest one we have ever stayed in with everything you could possibly need, it was really comfortable and warm and the view from the lounge/dining room/balcony was superb, on a clear day we could see right over the solway firth to dumfries and galloway :) plus there was the added pleasure of the hot tub to relax in every night :D:D:D the village was very quiet but had a lovely pub just down the road from the lodge that did the most lovely food and in HUGE portions for really good value for money :) and to top it all apart from one rainy day on the sunday it was gorgeous for the rest of the week, we have been on lovely boat trips, done some lovely walks, visited some lovely villages and towns and met some really great friendly people, think next year we might just be heading back especially if we can order the same weather LOL

here's a few of the 278 photo's i took LOL will have to whittle that down quite a bit LOL

this one was taken on the lady of the lake steamer on ullswater on thursday, it was actually a really lovely day just very cold on the lake when the boat shot off at top speed LOL

this one is of ambleside from the boat on windermere

this is castlerigg stone circle, it was a lovely evening and i had the place to myself, a real spiritual special place

some of the beautiful residents of windermere and sunset through the trees next to our lodge, in the summer the sun sets right in front of the lodge which i imagine will be completely stunning if this was anything to go by
