originalribenababy Says: What better way to get to know the biggest lake in England than taking a boat out?We opted to hire a rowing boat for an hour early one morning in November, and had the lake pretty much all to ourselves.The quiet and the views were really special and we would definitley go...
originalribenababy Says: Just a mini aquarium but still fun to visit, exhibiting quite a lot of species you would expect to find in the district. The otters were my favourite, as wild otters are so hard to see. I also liked all the mice they had.This visit took us about an hour or two, its a good...

This was a nice quiet pub just along from Sutherlands restaurant.
It had a nice atmosphere and open fires for keeping warm in November :)
The drinks weren't too expensive and it was just a nice laid back place to have a few drinks and catch up with friends.
Dress Code: No dress code, just a casual pub

Ok, this could be just a North of England thing, but I adore Lakeland! It used to be called Lakeland Plastics and they issue a mail order catalogue two or three times a year. The first time I got my hands on one of these catalogues I spent over £100! They sell homeware, and a few specialist foods (Australian eating liqourice, munchy pumpkin seeds that kind of thing) and have every kind of gadget for the kitchen you could possibly imagine. It's the kind of company that gets thankyou letters by the thousand, and also if you have a utensil that you've had for ever and it's nearing the end of it's life, they'll try and find a new one for you. Even going so far as to get local people to replicate the tool. Some of their best selling products have begun their life this way.
I found a cereal dispenser that I know my kids will love, and by the time we'd left we were struggling to fit everything in the car!
What to buy: Gadgets! They have stuff I didn't even know I couldn't live without!
What to pay: No more than your average department store.

The landscape changes from Ullswater to Windermere. The mountains are smoother but still impressive. The road however is narrow, and very winding. It is difficult when a greedy driver tries to take up more of his share of the road, as there is little room to move to except on to the very narrow verge . Dry stone walls line the roads making it seem narrower than ever. And it is difficult to drive at anything but slowly..
I personally find driving in such conditions very stressful, even when it was a bright sunny day as we had.

We had hired a car for our trip and so i would definately advise a little meander through the countryside that makes up cumbria, it is most beautiful and scenic and you see many sheep and cows, the roads can become very very narrow so do be careful.
