Lake District Love

After climbing and completing Snowdon back in July, me and Darrell decided to book ourselves into a cute little guest house and attempt the next peak.. Scaffell Pike. We stayed about 5 minutes from the centre of Keswick in a guest house called 'The Beeches' it's a beautifully run B&B with very friendly hosts. We stayed in bedroom 2 which was a superking! It was absolutely massive, beautifully decorated with an en suite bathroom attached! We paid £85.00 per night for both of us including the breakfast, which was slightly more expensive then what we paid in Wales but worth it! The breakfast below was  locally sourced and delicious. They didn't have a massive range of choice for breakfast, but they had the classic full English, minus the beans.. which was slightly disappointing!

We arrived at the Wasdale car park at about 11.30am and had to pay £6.50 for an all day car parking ticket which we thought was pretty steep! We started from this one because apparently it's the most popular and Darrell had climbed from here twice before! To be honest, i have no idea what path we followed up as we just went with the majority, but it felt never ending.. At one point i thought i was going to cry!! It's so high up, but once you get up to the top it's the most breath taking view you will ever see.. Below are a few of my favourite snaps from the journey up to the top! My leg's are definitely feeling the burn today..

Yesterday we decided (i decided, because i couldn't walk properly) to take a more chilled out approach and go on a boat trip from Ambleside to Bowness on Windemere, it wasn't as nice weather but it was still so relaxing and peaceful to sit at the front of a boat.. the return ticket was only £10.00 which was an absolute bargain! You can get off either side and have a wander around or do a round boat trip which takes about 70 minutes in total, they also point out historic points besides the lake which was interested to know!

Next stop Ben Nevis.. Eeek!
