Am I ok?! No… I’m
I’ve never been a massive fan of New Years celebrations… it’s so overrated. For me, I enjoy being surrounded by the people I love and to celebrate “out with the old, in with the new”.
I’m not about going out and spending a small fortune on overly priced night clubs and drinks. Nah-uh! That’s not for me!
Unlike the past few years, of a house full of friends merrily singing and dancing our way into the new year, this year myself along with Angus and his family (Dogs included) took a road trip up north to the Lake District.
I’ve never been before and only ever heard good things.
Angus’s parents very kindly organised this short trip and it was beautiful! The hotel they found was based in the middle of no where with the odd hostel or pub at least a 15-20 minute walk away.
Glaramara Hotel, a dog friendly location with welcoming staff (and incredibly high heating- which probably wasn’t helped by the open log fires) but with peaceful countryside on the door step, literally!
On both evenings we were treated to a wonderful 3 course meal, which is so yummy and I’m actually devastated that on both occasions I struggled to finish all 3 courses. In the mornings we had a buffet breakfast which again hit the spot and was just what was needed.
Being in the Lake District was such a wonderful and relaxing way to bring in the New Year, especially after the chaos of Christmas, was just what was needed to refresh- even though I was left feeling knackered but it’s all in aid of a good cause, aka Fresh Air!
Thank you again to my future in-laws for inviting me along on their trip, it really was a well needed break before the drop-kick back to reality on the 2nd of January (which may I add, going back to work that soon, should be illegal!)
If you’ve never been to the Lake District it is definitely worth it. I shall be going back that’s for sure!
Any locations in the UK that you love to visit? Let me know and I shall add them to my list.
Thanks for reading and I hope wherever you were you had a wonderful new year.
Until next time,
