The Lakes District

From Kirkby Stephen the Lakes District was only 45 minutes drive away. We visited twice and both days we had intermittent rain then sunshine. We have visited the area before and loved the very pretty villages so wanted to reacquaint ourselves.

In Keswick it was market day so we decided to explore the gardens over near the lake. We have spent some time in town on a previous trip so it was nice to look at the gardens instead.


Grasmere is one on the prettiest towns, in our opinion, in the lakes area. It is only small but has many lovely buildings.

Ambleside and Bowness are ideal villages to explore the lake from.

As the afternoon rains dampened our trip, we called it a day and returned to the castle to relax.
