Sticky Toffee Pudding - The Taste

Sticky Toffee Pudding - The Diet Starts Next Week

Having just got back from spending Christmas in ‘The Lakes’, and having been there almost annually for the past 15 years, it struck me that now might be as good a time as any to give you my perspective. Let me point out straight away, that I am NOT a born hiker or a camper (mmm, ducky). To me...

The British weather.

I considered the wisdom of doing yet another travel review for surely now I have written sufficient reviews for this month's competition and yet I still felt one was missing, one which I need to write for a special reason. Throughout the years most of my UK holidays have been taken with my friend...

“Something for everyone”

published 12/03/2007

Beautiful scenery, lots to do

Very busy in peak season, expensive

Ah, the Lake District. Just thinking about it brings back memories of perfect summer days, with limitless views (I think this day happened in about 1996 and has never happened since). The Lake District is by far my favourite place in England. I am lucky enough to live within easy driving distance...

I have lived on the Lake District peninsula all my life (Almost 21 years) so I'll do my best to try and explain as much as possible about the area, things to do, the people and places to recommend. As the whole, the Lake District's main source of income is from tourism. There are many many things...

“Coniston”

Chocolate Tiffin, Real Ales, Peace and Quiet

I only get to go about 4 times a year

My review is specifically about the gorgeous village of Coniston. My fiancee and I go up to Coniston about 4 times a year and have been doing for nearly five years now, so it can't be bad! The village of Coniston is situated at the North-western tip of Coniston Water, the lake where Donald...

Beautiful, Peaceful, Lots of things to do.

I absolutely love the Lake District - I don't live too far away (about an hour and a half), so have the odd (long) day trips there, but have also holidayed for the odd week with family staying at the fantastic White Cross Bay - which I can highly recommend if you are thinking about visiting the...

Great scenery,quality food and friendly folk

Can be boring for city slickers who hate walking

My husband and I were lucky enough to win a pair of First Class Virgin Rail Tickets recently and our initial choice was Yorkshire but there didn't seem to be an easy route to get there via Virgin so we chose to go to the Lake District instead. Considering that we've both visited the Lake District...

Rains quite a bit

I have visited Scotland, Snowdonia, The Pennines and the Yorkshire Dales, but The Lake District remains my utmost favourite for spending a walking holiday. It has glimmering lakes and wind-swept tarns, valleys and ghylls, towering crags and narrow rakes all combining to form razor-sharp ridges...

Still some foot paths closed

Today’s is a review of my trip around the Lake District this weekend. I will try and give you an idea about how foot and mouth is still effecting this area. I will point out that with just a small amount of care, it will be a normal holiday meaning foot and mouth should not prevent you...

“Tea Cakes and Hiking Boots”

Great walks, fantastic views

Beware the bank holiday

Back in the days BC (Before Children) I was a regular lake district visitor and like nothing better than a quick (Well by quick I really mean slow) trek up the highest mountains in England, Scafell being the highest peak and I am sorry without going to get the map I can not give you the height...

Breathtaking scenery

The British weather!

The Lake District National Park has to be one of the most beautiful places in England. There is so much to do and so many places to see that there is enough information to write a book let alone an opinion! What I intend to do is tell you about the places that I love in the Lake District and...

Cold!

have travelled to the lake district twice now, and I would classify it a 'sexy place'. I also have another trip there in October 2001 (this month) for two weeks, and I really can't wait!. Around the lake district, you can escape the hustle and bustle of life, relax, unwind and take in all of the...

mountains, lakes, fresh air, lots of pubs

None

Nothing can compare to the Lake District. You can use as many metaphors as you like, churn out a million similes if you wish, but will you come close to describing this thing of beauty? Of course, you have guessed it… I love the 'Lakes' and have been venturing there for almost ten years. However...

Crowded in honey pots,weather,access

Ok, so from from my title you will realise my opinion may be a little biased but i do definately realise the downsides to it. I have close ties with the lake district - i currently live only 1hour away(uni in lancaster) and spend many of my holidays there, probably 2 or more weeks in a year. Also...

the weather is often v.bad

We decided to visit the Lake District recently for the weekend. It would have been much nicer to have stayed for longer as it's not possible to cover the District in 2 days, however if you're going there for a few days, then this guide may help. Travelling - Travelling to the LD is not hard, in...
