      My wife and I stayed here with two other couples as part of our Coast To Coast walk.
      We were met on arrival by Rob - one of the owners of this absolutely beautiful hotel. He was very welcoming and check-in for the six of us was very efficient.
      The location is perfect. Right in the heart of the gorgeous village of Grasmere.
      The grounds are lovely, which is where we had a drink after checking in and getting cleaned up.
      Dinner was an experience. Clearly Anton (in the kitchen) and Rob (maitre d) take a great deal of pride in all aspects of their hotel and restaurant. The food was spectacular and the service was perfect. My only criticism would be that we thought Rob was a bit tough on a junior staff member who is clearly learning but still doing a great job. Such is their perfectionism.
      After our evening meal, we retired to the lounge for coffee and tea, where Rob brought out a cake for one of our group who was celebrating their birthday.
      Breakfast was probably the biggest and highest quality spread we had on the whole Coast to Coast walk.
      The packed lunch was of a similar standard to the other meals.
      Rob and Anton have renovated the entire hotel with care and pride. The lounge area and dining room were very nice. Our rooms were immaculate and the en-suites amazing. They were much larger than you would expect in a hotel of this age.
      I have rated this as 5/5 but would have given it 6 if I could.
      My wife and I hope to return one day to do Helvellyn and Striding Edge. It will give us a great excuse to come back and stay again (and for longer) and do some other walks in the area.

      Today we were expecting a shorter and maybe easier day.
      However, the temperature soared to 27 degrees (which doesn't seem much until you are walking for hours in the direct sun), there was no breeze, and clouds were few and far between.
      And the distance may have been shorter, but the degree of difficulty clearly stepped up a notch.

There is also a number of original sketches of rabbits and other animals from her books. Unfortunately we weren't allowed to take any photos inside the house. We then went for a drive ...

Once we entered the grounds there was a hold up on the road with the sheep crossing to the next paddock. We also saw some deer on the drive in. We wondered through the house looking at the artwork and a number of rooms including the main ...

      ... through Kielder towards Galashiels. This is brilliant driving country, fast and open with only a few towns and villages to impose speed limits. I am mostly familiar with the A1 route, which hugs the (admittedly fantastic) coast, but I would also definitely like to return here and explore this area more fully. It's probably a good thing that it is fast though, because it's over 100 miles to Edinburgh and we have a date with a former colleague of Stu's at the University.

      ... bigger in real life than it does on the internet. Dinner in a pub and an early night ready for the next day. --- The morning of the climb was clear. There were clouds just touching the very top of Skiddaw but I was hoping they would burn off by the time I got up to the top. Setting off around 9am it was an easy walk out of the town to find the trail that would take me up to the car park where most others start from. The way was steep and muddy due to the forestry works ...
