A little getaway

“I wandered lonely as a Cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and Hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden Daffodils;
Beside the Lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.”

William Wordsworth, 1804

Living just over an hour from Windermere in the South Lakes, you’d think we’d spend more time there.  But life gets in the way and we haven’t had a break here for too many years.  We rectified this over the weekend, when we escaped for two childfree nights to celebrate The Husband’s birthday.

With daffodils fluttering and dancing on every verge we arrived at The Hideaway Hotel in time for tea and cakes and spent a blissful two days and nights relaxing with hot stone massages, gentle walks, excellent food and comfy beds.

Thanks, you guys!  We love you.

    Bliss. Looks like you had a lovely time and the weather was kind too. Lovely treat for the Grandparents too K xXx

      I’m not entirely sure whether we had the most fun or the Grandparents did. I am happy to test the theory again soon! 😉

    Sounds like a wonderful break. I’m coming over to the U.K. in June for my birthday and we are thinking of doing something very similar to this. Just deciding on where to go. At the moment, Bath is the front runner.

      My birthday is June…what date is yours?
      Bath is wonderful. We so nearly moved there a few years ago. If you go there, make sure you get a little visit in to Frome too. It’s such a pretty town with cute shops.

  3. How wonderful and we’ll deserved! I really must take Big Man to the Lake District….such a beautiful part of the country.

    • Pendle Stitches says:

      Yes you should. He’s a mountain guy. He’d love it. And the food can be absolutely stunning! He loves food too!
      Do let us know if you come and you’d like lunch companions. 😉

  4. This place looks fantastic! I have already bookmarked it…and cake may have something to do with it ;o)
    I’m so happy you enjoyed your break…sounds like the perfect vacation!
