I don’t know about you but one of the things Mr H and I love to do when autumn arrives is to plan a little break, a weekend away or even a holiday for half-term. This year we took our first holiday outside of the UK since Lil G arrived, as much as it was heavenly to have guaranteed sunshine and beach days there is something so cosy and welcoming about a Classic British Hotels break in the winter. I am dreaming of open log fires in the beautiful English countryside, stunning views and long walks through beautiful garden landscapes all wrapped up with a hot chocolate in one hand and my boys hand in the other.
We regularly go out for long countryside walks, I am always amazed by how pretty the UK is and by how much of it we just don’t see. We’ve ventured to Wales and the Peak District a few times as a family, but this time I think we need to explore a different part of our gorgeous country. I’m thinking of the Lake District, I’ve visited a couple of times when I was growing up but never with our little family and I think it’s time we corrected that. We have been looking at Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel – I love its history and the fact that it is set in the Lake District National Park. Lil G is excited by the fact that’s its previous owner was children’s author Beatrix Potter and is already planning a little rabbit hunt.
