For as long as I can remember I have enjoyed the great outdoors. I loved the difference in weather, I loved meeting different people and of course the different views each day brings. What better place to get all of these things in one place than the Lake District. Mike and I met in the Lake District over 10 years ago and every time we go back we find some new route to go and explore. However there are things that we do time and time again. We go to the Picnic Box in Ambleside and order rocky road – it is the best you have had! We have brunch in the Apple Pie shop, again more scrumptious pie that is pretty darn good. The sticky toffee pudding in the Wainwright Pub in Langdale needs to be tested out too. This blog is should be called my favourite Lake District food!
Some of my favourite walks are around Coniston, including the Old Man. I enjoy walking the Langdales and I do love a good climb up to Stickle Tarn, then weather dependant nipping up to Pavey Ark as the views from there are some of my favourite. I have started to use walking poles now, not only do they help my knee on the way down but they are lightweight so are no extra effort to carry. You can buy some great gear on the top floor of the Epic Centre, also we love a good look around Adventure Peaks, who also have a climbing wall incase the weather outside is pretty bad. There are loads more things I love about the Lake District but I will share them another time! Ciao for now!
