Exploring the Lake District has been on my list of places to go for ages! I can't believe how long it has taken me to get it booked and head up there. We went in November, certainly not the warmest time of year to go, but I would argue it's one of the prettiest. The trees are all turning orange and although it's cold, it's not icy cold. Anyway, cold hands are just an excuse to get a hot chocolate.
We were based near Windermere and Bowness-on-Windermere,
