Hi Elspeth, Great site DiscoverCumbria, good luck.
We enjoy the lakes on or tandem -the downs mostly, but the ups are required too!

Doing a bit of stuff in room 1, opening a window that has been shut for 180 years!, needed a hammer and chisel (and a bit of plastering afterwards), but we got there in the end.
A coat of paint on the frame that has not seen a pait brush for 180 years and a good clean of the glass and all will be good. Opens up a whole new view from room 1

Fantastic day here, weather brilliant, three large groups in the hostel this wekend and a few individauls too, could have heard a pin drop this morning -just the odd snore now and then fron somewhere. We have Russians, Columbians, Welsh, Germans, Chinese, English and more. Why not book to enjoy a stay here too?

Blackberry's are ripe and in abundance! Yep its going to be  a cracker year for blackberrys in the Lake District, so get on your bike and find a hedgerow with a load of the little beauties in. Simply stop and munch! What could be better than a fresh off the stalk blackberry. Make sure you pick above dog wee line and watch out for the prickles. You can get accomodation at Ambleside Backpackers Hostel to start your feast cycle ride. The views while munching are unsurpassed and the sun is shining (at the moment). Alternativly take a container (pockets are no good, you squash the little blighters) and pick a load to share or make a pie with for your friends.
