To date, June 2014 has to be characterised as the best month for sunshine galore! I can hardly believe how warm it is in the Lake District; nay, it has been positively boiling at times! So hot that we daren’t leave the dog in the car when going out shopping, so Hubby and I take turns to stay in the car with him.
Here are some recent photos of beautiful Lakeland landscapes bathed in sunshine. Do come and join us to enjoy these wonderful sunny days!
Visit The Langdales, just a few minutes’ drive from Blenheim Lodge in Bowness-on-Windermere. St Anne’s is a literal 5-minute drive from our guest house, where our kids used to school.
Coniston Water is only 20-40 minutes’ ride from our Bed and Breakfast, depending on whether one crosses Lake Windermere on the car ferry from Bowness-on-Windermere or goes the long way around the lake. Guests can enjoy boat rides on Windermere, Coniston, Derwentwater, and Ullswater.
Rydal Water is only 20 minutes’ ride from Blenheim Lodge. Rydal is also home to Rydal Mount, where William Wordsworth planted a field of daffodils in remembrance of his daughter, Dora, who died in July 1847.
The next photo was taken by Tarn Hows, one of my favourite bodies of water in the Lake District. I remember the first time I set eyes upon this pulchritudinous gem: my jaw quite literally dropped at its amazing loveliness! Tarn Hows is no more than 20-30 minutes’ ride from Blenheim Lodge B&B.
Well, I hope you have enjoyed looking these photos as much as I have enjoyed sharing them with you. Do come and visit with us. And here is a picture of one of our rooms and the views from it in case you are wondering about the setting of our guest house, Blenheim Lodge.
Blenheim Lodge . . . panoramic Lake views, peace and tranquillity, nestled against acres of beautiful fields and woodlands, in the heart of the English Lake District National Park.’
