Going for a Wander...

There's lots of fabulous walks near the cottage and we stumbled across these charming stepping stones while looking for a picnic spot the other day. The weather has been rather warm this autumn in the Eden Valley so it's always best to make the most of it, especially when staying in such an area of outstanding beauty.

Neighbours doing a spot of renovation...

It's so good to see that our favourite castle is having work done to save this fantastic building.  The grounds are simply stunning and a great place to spot local wild deer bounding about the fields and hedgerows.  The castle is now open to the public which is great news as it's been closed for many years.  Can't wait to go and have a nosey and see how they're getting on.  It would be a stunning setting for a wedding - makes me want to get married all over again.

Favourite Gift Shops in Keswick...

Keswick is great for a bit of retail therapy, whether shopping for a gift or treating yourself. It makes a refreshing change to see so many lovely independent shops and businesses thriving in this busy market town. My favourite has to be the Orchard House at the top of the main square.  I can happily spend all day in there looking at the lovely shabby chic items.
