Words by the Water, Keswick, March 2014

Visitors to the Lakes in March 2014 can join enjoy the wonderful Words by the Water Festival, taking part in the Theatre by the Lake, Keswick, from 7 - 16 March 2014.

Those of us who live in the Lakes consider ourselves very fortunate to have this event on our doorstep. Billed as a "Festival of words and ideas", it features a wide range of authors , broadcasters and all round very interesting people.

I'm keen to hear Joanna Trollope, A. L. Kennedy, Philippa Gregory and Penelope Lively.
Or would I like to hear Melvyn Bragg ( again), who is President of the Festival?
Maybe Jeremy Paxman? George Monbiot? Michael Rosen? This is an outstanding programme.

Here's a link to the Words by the Water Festival so that you can see for yourself the great range of speakers for 2014.

If you don't live in the area, you could rent our Lakes Holiday Cottage and drive the very scenic 20 minutes to Keswick to hear your choice of speakers. A week in March is just £490 if you book during January ( usual rate £550) Here is a link to more info about our Historic Grasmere Holiday Cottage with amazing views .

March can be a great time for walking in the Lakes. The days are already quite long, and the weather can be good ( but no promises!) Here's a photo ( a rare one of me - I usually take them) taken on a sunny March day. It was so warm I didn't need a jacket, even on the top. It's taken on Silver Howe, which is a walk than can be done directly from Brockstone, our Grasmere Holiday Cottage. In fact, you can see Brockstone from the top of Silver Howe ( and vice versa of course)
