Grasmere looking like a Heaton Cooper painting today

It's a still grey day. There's snow on the fells, which are reflected in Grasmere. To me, this looks rather like a Heaton Cooper painting. Not bad for something snapped on a very basic phone.

Now taking cottage bookings for 2015

Our Christmas guests enjoyed their stay at Brockstone Cottage, though the weather was very variable to put it mildly.

On Monday 22 December we awoke to floods. I had to drive to Ambleside at 9 am, and was shocked to find that the water came well over the car wheels as I drove past Nab Cottage. It was a struggle to get through.

Later in the week we got beautiful crisp dry sunny weather, and this was the view from Brockstone on the Saturday when the guests left.

In the foreground is the ridge between Loughrigg and Silver How, and in the background covered on snow is Wetherlam and the Coniston Fells.

We're now taking bookings for 2015. You can check rates and availability and read reviews on the Holiday Lettings website or the HomeAway website.
