Last weekend we decided to treat ourselves to a short break in the Lake District. We booked ourselves into a fancy B and B in Keswick, driving up on Saturday and staying for a couple of nights.
Keswick is a market town and tourist centre (ever since Georgian times) in the North Lake District, on Derwent Water
Surrounded by dramatic scenery
It’s always a bit of a gamble booking a beak in the Lakes where most of the enjoyment is spending time outdoors, but we were lucky with the weather for the first two days. It was overcast and cloudy (so not great for taking photos with the light flat and grey)
but it didn’t rain and the sun broke through a few times. The autumn colours were breaking out
We managed a couple of walks, half a day on Saturday and a long day out on Sunday.
It rained on Monday, but we’d planned on mooching round Keswick and visiting the Wordsworth House in Cockermouth, and neither were dependant on good weather.
We also managed to have a rather nice meal out and a visit to the theatre (the Theatre by the Lake in Keswick). So all in all a very good break.
