Cumbria

I've added some pics to Twelfth's Scafell Pike thread and these are the best of the rest (given that they were all taken on a not very good phone camera)

Newby Bridge, where we were staying:

A few views of Windermere, which was literally at the end of the garden of the place we rented. The hill in the first pic is called Gummer's How, more of that in a bit:

One day we went for a walk up to Finsthwaite High Dam:

From there we walked through the woods to Lakeside where we got a small ferry across to Fell Foot Park for a stroll and then we went up Gummer's How, as it was supposed to have great views over the lake. This was true:

Some cows resting on the path to the top:

Some more right at the top, enjoying the view:

The following day we went up to Patterdale to see an old work colleague of the party's. Apart from me, all had worked together at British Airways in the past. This was the only day that was overcast the whole week:

Just beautiful!  Next year's hols feel a long way away...

Tis a lovely place. Much nicer than when I was there in May. We had sleet, snow, rain, hail, wind and sunshine in those 6 days!

Where are you going next year?
Twelfth Monkey

As yet undecided.  Not the fucking West Country after this year's seven and a half hour return trip!  We tend not to repeat locations, but I'd love to go the The Lakes again.

South West is our usual destination as it's so easy to get to and not too far for the pooches to be stuck in the back of the car, but we changed this year. Cumbria was a good 7 hours each way, which isn't great for a less-than 300 mile journey...
