The Lake District has a special place in our hearts. The Mr and I have spent many many years walking these beautiful hills, and 16 years ago we were married here.
Being The Lake District means the weather can be extremely hit or miss. When we visited at the end of Sept this year we had the best weeks weather ever, perfect walking weather, sunny without being too hot and so clear you could see for miles and miles.

There’s just no way to explain how amazing it is to sit at the top of a hill you’ve conquered, get out your packed lunch and look over views like this.
Many people go hill walking alone, and although I don't think I would ever do that, I can see why they do.

And if you aren’t up for walking up hills, the views across the Lakes are pretty special too.
If you ever get the chance to visit you should.
