Travel & Life Digest

Grasmere, Lake District

Half way up from London to Glasgow there is the fabulous Lake District. 

I had this image of melancholic rain around the lakes, rolling hills packed with rabbits (it did inspire Beatrix Potter back in the day!) and wet, wet, wet weather. 
Well, I wasn't far off but the scenery is ten times better than what you've heard of or imagined. No rabbits I'm afraid! And may I also are in for a treat with the pictures we managed to take. The clouds and the hills were posing for us!

Our view at breakfast from Daffodil Hotel

Houses on the hills around Lake Grasmere, in perfect harmony with the naughty, little streams that surround them. 
It was raining the whole time we were there, but somehow rain suits this place. 
Streams pop out of every little mountain slide. Low clouds hug the hills as they pass throughout the day. Such a romantic landscape! 

We stayed at the Daffodil Hotel & Spa, with its' quirky art and spectacular setting. We could hardly concentrate on breakfast; with every bite, we were taking a peak at the spectacular scenery: lake Grasmere, hills covered in low puffy clouds and pairs of sheep munching away on grass in the rain, so serene! 
The Jumbleroom

Dinner was at the utterly childish Jumbleroom
Bonbons and model planes hanging from the ceiling, kids books stacked on a shelf behind us, farmer & piglet salt & pepper set but grown up food! 
Sweet and soft pork belly bites, crab millefeulle, crispy sea bream on a bed of skordalia (spiced potato mash with garlic) and a very impressive, light and fluffy fish & chips! 
I'm still smiling at the thought of dinner in this place. 

We'll be back to hire a cottage and explore this romantic and tranquil part of the world and that's that! x
