Two days left to book our Lake District Cottage at 10% discount.

If you've walked from Grasmere to Rydal along the "Coffin Road" you'll have passed by our Lakeland cottage, Brockstone ( named over 200 years ago after the badgers who live around there).

We still have some weeks available to let in the cottage in 2013, and if you make a reservation today or tomorrow ( before the end of July) for a 2013 week, we are offering a 10% discout on our advertised rates. Click through here for more about our holiday cottage and links to rates.

The first available week is Saturday 24 August. We have already reduced that from £850 to £790, but if you book now there would be an extra 10% off, bringing the rate to £711.

We also have weeks available in September and October, a wonderful time to visit the Lakes. Any weeks in 2013 that are not marked as booked on the calender are avialble for this offer.

For those of you who want to book in 2014, we are already taking bookings. Don't leave it long before you get your dates booked.

There's lots going on the in Lakes right now

As well as all the usual walking, boating, eating and drinking there's lots going on to entertain you in the Lakes right now.

Take a look here at the Calender from the Go Lakes website ( the official Cumbria Tourism website) to get a taste of what's on. Music, theatre, guided walks, poetry, crafts, Lakeland shows, supper cruises and lots of other great ideas.

The sun has brought lots of visitors to the Lakes, but you can still find peace and quiet . We've got a few days from Monday 29 July to Thursday 1 August where we have of rooms still available last minute, so we've reduced our rates. Check our special offers page here to find out about our last minute rates.

You can't beat the English counrtryside when the weather is warm

Having spent  a few days in a very hot, sticky London visiting family it was a relief to get back home to the Lakes. It's been hot and sunny here too, and now with the odd rain shower everything in the garden seems to be supercharged.

Guests are really loving their visits. We've had lots of guests from Australia who all seem to wish they had more time to spend here "It's just so amazingly beautiful" they all say.

August is getting pretty booked up, though we do still have some dates available if you're flexible. If you can plan now to visit in September or October, let me know you've seen this page and we'll discount the usual rate by 10% if you stay two or more nights.

Not on topic at all, but where were you when you heard the news of the birth of baby Prince George? We were on a London bus when the driver shouted it out to us all, beating the BBC website by 10 minutes!
