... Stonegarth in Keswick. It is a lovely B and B. The bathroom has a spa bath and walk in shower and the mirror becomes a TV - haven't seen this before. We had a cup of coffee and then went for a walk into Keswick. We found a map which showed it would take us a while to walk to the lake known as Derwent Water so we turned around and went to an Italian restaurant, Casa Bella, for a pizza.

As we arrived Janet our host was heading down to feed the chooks and we sampled their produce the next morning in the form of beautifully poached eggs.
