Appleby and Ullswater Staycation

We've just returned from a couple of nights away in Appleby and a trip over the other side of the M6 to Ullswater.  The weather was perfect and we had a great time. I'm just going to share a few pictures with minimum text. Enjoy!

Excellent lunch at Tufton Mews Cafe and Wine Shop.  Service wasn't brilliant but the food was delicious.

Appleby Castle well worth a visit.

Appleby Manor

First night dinner in the Dining Room at Appleby Manor.

Selfie taken after climbing up that hill behind us and, even more challenging, coming back down - it was very steep!

We stopped off at The Helvellyn Country Kitchen at Glenridding for these fantastic scones with jam and cream.

A beautiful day spent on and around Ullswater.

On the second night we had dinner in the Bistro, including local beer. 

We headed home via The Watermill, Little Salkeld after indulging in an organic, wholemeal date and walnut scone and some refreshing tea.  We left laden with some bag of the flour ground in the traditional way at the mill.

Thanks Lorraine, we were very fortunate with the weather it wouldn't have been so idyllic this week!

We passed through Ullswater when we were in the Lake District last time we visited. Stunningly beautiful area! I'm sharing this on my FB page tonight! Lovely pics, and I'm drooling over the scone! I'm going to come home weighing a ton after my trip back home!

Thanks Christina, yes it is very beautiful. I'm on salad this week to try and shift all the food from last week!

Aw, thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed it and hope you are able to visit the UK again soon for a fix of 'home'.
