 Christmas really not that far ahead. Those of us who sing in choirs have already been learning the music for our Christmas concerts for several weeks. Here's one I'll be singing in with Ambleside Choral Society on Saturday 14 December 2019, and another one singing with Grasmere Glee at National Trust Allan Bank on Sunday 15 December 2019.

Bluebell blog 2019

Bluebells- they're everywhere this year. 

Bluebells -in the garden, on the roadside, behind the house, in the car park. Lake District bluebells are running riot.

The guests who have just stayed in our cottage, Brockstone Grasmere Cottage, were delighted to be surrounded by bluebells. The had a great stay in our "beautiful comfortable house"

It's many degrees colder 

this weekend than at last week's Easter weekend. Our 3 and 5 year old grandchildren paddled in the lake, got wet, stripped off, and lay down in the water. It was freezing. They loved it. Wild water swimming is a big thing in the Lake District right now- they could be well on the way to joining this great activity in the future.

If you like the idea of wild swimming in the Lakes the lovely people at Swim The Lakes in Ambleside can give you help and advice.

If you'd like to stay at our Grasmere Cottage with stunning views a try wild swimming, we have a few weeks left available this year. More information here on our other blog.
